Hilhi Joins Oregon Bioscience Association

January 30, 2019 - Hillsboro High School is the newest member of the Oregon Bioscience Association, making cutting-edge biotechnology skills and content available to traditionally underserved high school students. Current partnerships with PCC, Genentech and the Oregon National Primate Research Center expose students to modern lab techniques and content, and emphasize the application of traditional biology classes to work being done in labs around the world. A state-of-the-art bioscience technologies lab and instruction space opening next fall, will allow students to conduct research projects in partnership with local research labs and prepare them for post-secondary careers and educational advancement.
