BCA Applies for its Second Patent
I’m proud to share with you that on September 8, 2016, we filed a patent application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for “Cellulose Binding Domain Chitosan Seed Coating”. This is the result of the hard work and effort conducted by former student Alon Millet and Donna Leonardi in the Biotech research Lab. Our first patent, entitled "Nanoparticle mediated Genetic Delivery of Growth Inhibiting Genes to Suppress Intimal Hyperplasia" was based on work done by Jenna DiRito, Serena Tharakan and Dr. Pergolizzi. Congratulations to Alon and Donna on this momentous achievement.
Remembering Dr. Grieco
As we approach the anniversary of Dr. Grieco's passing we are reminded of the impact he left on our students.
"A dreamer by most accounts, but for that no less capable a doer, Dr. John Grieco('s)...calling was nothing less than revolutionizing how students are taught to achieve. He did it fruitfully and with little credit, but for the reward of having beautifully shaped minds." - Ms. Olivia Andrzejczak - Class of 2003
