CSI: Toledo, a program that gave students hands-on experience with elements of forensic science, was part of this year’s camp. Drs. Fred Williams and Jill Trendel orchestrated the experience. The annual camp, for high school seniors, introduces students to careers in pharmacy and the pharmaceutical sciences. Eighty students from Ohio and Michigan—and some from as far as Georgia, New York, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico—come to campus for the four-day, three-night camp. Students walked through a mock crime scene and evaluated evidence like fingerprints, blood types (not with real blood) and DNA in order to solve a crime. “CSI: Toledo shows students how crime scene chemistry translates into fascinating careers in scientific research, particularly in the pharmaceutical sciences,” said Laural Seewer, coordinator of the Pharmacy Summer Camp. “The faculty want to inspire these students to apply their skills in math and science to help others through careers in research.” Find out about CSI: Toledo for high school juniors, October 29, 2011 Three weeks down and seven to go! Wow, this is flying by so quickly that I can hardly believe I am even on the other side of the world. In case you have no idea what I am talking about, I, Thomas Tarry, am a recent senior majoring in Pharmaceutics in the Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences (BSPS) program. As some of you may know, all students in the BSPS program have to complete an internship in order to graduate. I am very fortunate to be doing my summer practicum at the University of Szeged in Szeged, Hungary. Read more
