Merrimack College is a small, comprehensive Catholic center of higher learning in North Andover, MA that enrolls nearly 2,000 full-time undergraduate students. The Department of Biology’s newly established program in Biotechnology and Biomedical Sciences offers an excellent foundation in both the theory and practice of science within the context of a strong liberal arts education. The strength of the program is centered on a comprehensive, interdisciplinary curriculum offering breadth and depth of study in the biological sciences, and dedicated faculty with demonstrated accomplishment in both teaching and research who are committed to developing close mentoring relationships with students in the classroom and laboratories. The graduates of the program are “Thinker/Doers”, that is, scientists who have the academic background and skill sets necessary to carry out the daily “hands-on” activities of the scientific enterprise, as well as the ability to critically read and analyze the scientific literature, trouble shoot experiments, draw valid conclusions based on available data, and perhaps most importantly, successfully adapt to the rapidly changing industry demands and technologies of the 21st century.
