Scientists have been solving the hardest health problems all through history—naming diseases, finding treatments or cures, making medicines available to those in need. We’re living longer and better than we ever have—and yet, there’s still so much to be done.
“Shire are honored to sponsor the TeenTech Health Award—giving teens a chance to see what it’s like to work on the big health issues of the day and to go home knowing you’ve helped take a step towards a cure. What’s a research laboratory look like? How long does it take to develop a drug? What tools do people who discover and develop drugs use, and how could those tools be even better? The questions are big, and the answers are fun”
