LifeScience Links COVID-19 Updates

HudsonAlpha seeks to provide a safe environment for all our participants and team members. We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation in our region to make a best-informed decision about holding in-person programming for Summer 2021. We will notify our registrants and post updates on this site if we are unable to host face-to-face activities.

Across all of our programs, HudsonAlpha will follow best-practices for gathering safely. These practices may change based on recommendations from health officials, but currently include reducing overall capacity, social distancing, masking, and frequent symptom/temperature checks.

LifeScience Links is a professional learning experience that provides seventh-grade life science teachers updated content knowledge, engaging strategies, and authentic lab experiences. Held on the campus of HudsonAlpha, a leading genomics research institute, educators leave the workshop equipped to link Course of Study Standards to real-world biotech applications and careers.

LifeScience Links will be held June 14-17, 2021.

Additional Details:

  • Participants will learn from leading researchers, scientists and educators with a focus on connecting content to biotech careers.
  • 2021 tuition: $800. Includes housing, take-home materials, and a catered Welcome Breakfast.
    *Alabama public middle school teachers have subsidized tuition, housing, materials and meal costs provided by the Alabama State Department of Education and the Alabama Legislature.
