Abbott calls for positive scientific classroom culture
31 July 2009 00:00 in Pharmaceutical Company Product News
Abbott has called for the creation of a culture that fosters and develops students' interest in science while they are in school.
Kathy Pickus, division vice-president of global citizenship and policy at the company, who is also vice-president of the Abbott Fund, said that providing students with access to its research is one of the most valuable contributions it has made to society.
She also said that the company takes steps to allow learners to work with the company's scientists to gain a greater understanding and appreciation of the scientific process.
Ms Pickus explained that some of the engineering and science students of today will eventually become the innovators and inventors of tomorrow.
"We need to create a culture for students in which their interest in science is encouraged, including through real-world experiences beyond the classroom," she concluded.
Earlier this month, Abbott announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire the nutrition businesses of Carol Info Services and Wockhardt.
