The research in genetics promises a revolution in pharmaceuticals. Right now there are high hopes, some exciting possibilities but few real therapies. In this segment we will survey the ways in which genetic information might be able to prevent and treat disease ... from vaccines to sprays to gene therapy. The ultimate dream is the ability to create specific, individualized drugs that are effective and have no side effects.

Each lesson includes background information, state and national science standards, discussion questions and answers, teacher notes and an activity that will ensure a hands-on, "minds-on" experience.
