Commitment to Education in Science
Our scientists are at the bench daily to produce and validate our antibodies, so they have hands-on experience and knowledge of each antibody’s performance.
Education in Science Committee
The value and importance of a high quality science education and inspiring young curious minds about science is critical to the next generation of scientific discovery. Many of us in the life science field can go back to a certain teacher or experience when we were young that changed the course of our education and understanding of the world. CST’s Education in Science program supports local* public high school science departments by giving science teachers and department heads the opportunity to seek additional funding for acquiring the appropriate resources that keep science fun and engaging. Grants from CST allow teachers to purchase anything from compound microscopes and electrophoresis equipment to digital scales and chemistry sensors.
Summer Internship Program
One of our most successful community initiatives is our Summer Internship Program. By employing and training students from our surrounding communities and colleges, CST is able to provide our summer interns with a positive lab experience alongside skilled and knowledgeable CST scientists. Many of the student interns will return year after year and after completing their science degree become full-time employees. Application for Internship.
Weekly Science Lecture Series
Much like an academic environment, our corporate culture recognizes the importance in having a creative edge to innovation. We encourage our scientists to attend weekly seminars held in the Yi Tan Memorial lecture hall. Having visiting scientists and specialists from around the country speak about their research and work helps keep our scientists informed about the latest technologies and trends. Our local public high school partnerships are located in the surrounding communities of: Beverly, Danvers, Hamilton-Wenham, Manchester, Salem, Peabody, Topsfield, Middleton, Boxford and Gloucester.
