The new bioscience center was born from the realization that our community needs to educate our high school students with the highest quality biological science experience in the country. We are blessed to live in an environment that has those resources in abundance. La Jolla has the greatest concentration of world class research institutes and biotech companies in the country.
Rather than import scientists and technicians from other parts of the country, or even overseas, we need to be training our own children for these high-paying jobs. To impart these critical skills of the 21st century, we need to completely update our existing facility and create a venue where the leading scientists of our community can come to speak about their research. Those lectures, and the hands-on labs that accompany them, can be a resource to be shared with the entire San Diego community.
