Students at Ironwood Ridge High School have the unique opportunity to work at Nighthawk Biotechnology, Inc., thanks to The BIOTECH Project, put on by the BIO5 Institute and the UA Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology. “Some kids might see forensic technology on TV, but biotechnology is almost never on their radar,” said Dr. Nadja Anderson, Director of the BIOTECH Project. “But once they experience it hands-on, they realize it’s very applicable to their lives and for careers.”
