About the Partnership

Harrisburg University of Science and Technology’s Biotechnology program hosts the Capital Area Biotechnology Partnership (CABP). Working with educators and other leaders from Central Pennsylvania’s area biotech firms, government agencies, industry, local community colleges, and area school districts, CABP delivers a quality educational collaborative pl to high school and college students, and science career-seekers.
