RIT professors from the College of Health Sciences and Technology gave third-graders a glimpse of the field of biomedical sciences during a visit to the Park Road School in the Pittsford Central School District on Jan. 10. Biomedical sciences professors Douglas Merrill, above, and Robert Osgood gave 75 students a crash course in DNA. Merrill, Osgood and Tamra Werner, CHST alumni director, worked with the students to extract and isolate strands of their genetic code in tiny glass pendants. Osgood’s DNA necklace exhibit is a perennial favorite at the Imagine RIT: Innovation and Creativity Festival, held this year on April 28.
