Video: How To Make A Medicine

As part of Vertex's ongoing efforts to support Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education, Vertex frequently plays host to dozens of students of all ages who take part in hands-on science experiments around Vertex's Cambridge campus.  Vertex scientists volunteer their time for these informative visits and work alongside the students to stimulate their interest in science.  To support the goal of helping students understand the process behind making a medicine, Vertex scientists also take the students into our formulation lab where the students are able to make their own colorful tablets using processes similar to those used in actual drug development.  Watch the students and scientists in action in this video:
