The Biotechnology Center seeks to enhance the WKU academic environment through fostering interdisciplinary collaboration of faculty, and providing modern infrastructure, equipment, and training to its members and their students. The Center promotes successful acquisition of extramural funding and facilitates biotechnology-centered research and techniques to WKU students and faculty. The Center also supports outreach to the broader biotechnology community.
OPPORTUNITIES TO GET INVOLVED
Students are involved in our center when they work with a faculty member who is a member of our center. Depending on the research they are involved with, they have the opportunity to be trained in laboratory techniques and to use our equipment. This makes a big difference in their future applications for graduate or professional schools and on their resumes for future jobs.
Faculty who have a need for molecular biological equipment can become a member of our center.
For the Community
We give tours of our facility to high school groups to allow students to see opportunities for research should they choose to attend WKU. This has been a very effective recruiting technique as students and parents are often impressed by our facility.
