Curious about how antibodies fight the flu? San Francisco Bay Area YWIB is excited to host an event with Genentech for students interested in learning how scientists discovered antibody therapeutics that combat the flu and how antibody therapeutics are made. Students will participate in interactive sessions and a tour, where Genentech scientists will discuss how they develop new therapies to benefit patients. Students will also meet professional women from Genentech, who will share their personal experiences at a pizza party and Q&A session. This event is for middle and high school girls.
