IB Chemistry Class Visits Cary Institute

The Millbrook High School International Baccalaureate (IB) Chemistry class visited Dr. Emma Rosi at the Cary Institute to learn about her research on the effects of medicines and drugs in bugs, food chains and our waterways.  Ms. Alonge-Watz, teacher and her class visited the  stream facility and took part in the set-up of her new study on micro-plastics.  This trip gave the class insights into the area of medicinal chemistry, which is an IB Chemistry unit, and helped to make a global connection into the research process on a variety of pharmaceuticals.
