EMD Serono hosted 30 students from Chelmsford High School as part of Career Exploration Day organized by the MassBioEd Foundation.
“All of us at EMD Serono are excited to welcome the students to our Research & Development Facility in Billerica for the opportunity to tour our labs and speak with our researchers and scientists about the work they do every day to accelerate innovation,” said Gary Zieziula, president and managing director of EMD Serono.
Career Exploration Days provide students with the opportunity to learn about the biotechnology industry, interact directly with life sciences professionals, participate in science demonstrations and tour company facilities. At these events, students experience a tangible connection between the life sciences curriculum they see in their classrooms and the groundbreaking scientific innovation that drives the Massachusetts life sciences supercluster.
Career Exploration Day, part of MassBioEd’s signature BioTeach program, aims to increase students’ interest in pursuing life sciences careers. Through BioTeach, MassBioEd provides teacher professional development workshops and mentoring, student experiential learning and career exploration opportunities, and funds to public schools for lab supplies and equipment.
