Genomics, Biotechnology
& Health Sciences Research Lab


Healthcare and biotechnology have emerged as one of the most challenging and in-demand domains in recent times. Advancements in this domain lead to innovations like wearable gadgets, medical devices, robotics surgery, new & effective treatment of diseases, control of an epidemic and development of life-saving vaccines.
Our Genomics, Biotechnology & Health Sciences Research Lab provides children great exposure to Gene Editing and its applications, DNA sequencing technology, CRISPR, Plant biology and therapeutics. This lab allows our young innovators to explore some of the top challenges in this domain, and brainstorm with fellow students to innovate solutions to meet these challenges.

At our Genomics, Biotechnology & Health Sciences Research Lab, we provide our students:

Domain-specific
training.

Activities to understand
domain concepts.

One large project at
the end of the module.

Hisham Ahmad - CMO

I am a 14-year-old freshman attending Brighter Horizons Academy in Garland, Texas. I have extensive experience with marketing, as I have been a part of various companies and mentorships. I graduated from the DiscoverStem program, allowing new doors to open up for me, and change the way I see things. The DiscoverStem program has also given me more experience with concepts such as patents, invention, and innovation, as well as inspiration to use these skills to help the world around us.

DiscoverSTEM founders Mirza Rizwan and Mirza Faizan have made history by becoming the first Indian to win the coveted George Washington Honor Medal from the Freedoms Foundation – USA.

Started in 1949 by former US President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Freedoms Foundation honors exceptional contributions of Americans towards communities in the USA. Generally reserved for the US citizens, the awarding organization made an exception to recognize the stellar research work and its impact of India’s Mr. Rizwan in designing and implementing a unique STEM & Innovation program for American children, thereby revolutionizing the education system in the USA.

Few of the other notable non-US citizens who have received George Washington Honor Medal include Ms. Margaret Thatcher (Former Prime Minister of United Kingdom), Lech Walesa (Former President of Poland and Noble Prize winner) and world-renowned Russian writer Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. As the latest recipients of this prestigious honor, Mirza brothers join historically acclaimed group of citizens whose work and dedication advance the American ideals, the award letter says.

Some of the distinguished US citizens who have received this award for their stellar contributions in their field are Walt Disney, Astronauts Sally Ride and John Glenn, Capt. Sully Sullenberger, Athletes like Arthur Ashe, George Foreman and Tiger Woods and famous US educator Jaime Escalante.
