Surry Community College Instructor Jeff Jones recently brought classroom lessons to life for students enrolled in his BIO 111: General Biology I course with a field trip to Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine.

Students toured several lab and equipment spaces of the facility responsible for engineering the first laboratory-grown organs successfully implanted into humans in the world to compliment classroom discussions about tissue and organ regeneration and transplants.

Jones said, “We used the experience to connect cutting edge scientific research that has the potential to impact vast numbers of lives with the fundamental biological concepts covered in General Biology I.”

Surry offers an associate in science degree designed for students interested in transferring to a four-year institution and majoring in a either science, technology, engineering or math, including science and math education. Students who obtain an associate in science degree at the college will be eligible to transfer to all constituent institutions of the University of North Carolina with junior status upon admission into the institution.
