A big thank you to all who came out to our Open House!  As many of you know, the Gloucester Biotechnology Academy recently moved to its new facility at 55 Blackburn Center and held an Open House on May 26th.  It was a wonderful event, made possible by the participation of many new and existing friends, enrolled students and their families, local high school and college instructors, and neighbors who wanted to see how the new space turned out after 6 months of renovation. The party lasted for 3 hours, and was a terrific celebration of the new facility and Biotech Academy.

If you were not able to attend the Open House and would still like to take a tour and/or learn more about the Gloucester Biotechnology Academy or Gloucester Marine Genomics Institute, please email us:  info@gmgi.org

Gloucester Biotechnology Academy (GBA) is offering high school graduates a 1-year course that will prepare you for an entry-level job as a lab technician — and a professional career with tremendous upside.

You’ll also have a paid internship, after successfully completing two 11 week semesters.
