Mr. Gerry Durmowicz, Product Support Manager at medical device manufacturer Becton Dickinson, presented to students in the BT 205 course: Biosafety and Quality Assurance. He received a Bachelor’s degree from Loyola College and two Master of Science degrees, from Middlebury College and Johns Hopkins University. Mr. Durmowicz said he was drawn to this position because of the practical, rather than theoretical, nature of the job. He started working at Becton Dickinson 18 years ago and shared his experiences in the field with students. The BT 205 course introduces safety and quality control issues related to product development in the biotechnology industry and Mr. Durmowicz’s presentation was valuable in increasing student understanding of these concepts.
