WAYNE, N.J., July 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals is pleased to announce it will support the New Jersey Governor's School in the Sciences (NJGSS) at Drew University this summer.  This is the second year in a row that Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals has sponsored the program, which is the longest running of the active Governor's schools.

The NJGSS offers courses in neuroscience, cell biology, physics, mathematics, anthropology and chemistry. Eighty-five of the state's top math and science students representing 18 of New Jersey's 21 counties will participate in the three week program, which runs from July 11-31.  

"We challenge these outstanding high school juniors with an academic program that they usually would not experience until well into their college careers," said Dr. David Miyamoto, director of the NJGSS at Drew University.  "Students work together in teams on highly experiential research projects that lead to the writing of scientific-style papers and oral presentations of the work at a scientific-style conference."  

"As a company dedicated to science, we recognize the importance of unique programs like the NJGSS," said Sandra J. Oliver, vice president, public policy and government affairs at Bayer.  Located in Wayne, the company's aim is to develop and manufacture products that will improve human health by diagnosing, preventing and treating diseases.

Additionally, Making Science Make Sense® (MSMS) is Bayer's company-wide initiative that advances science literacy through hands-on, inquiry-based science education, employee volunteerism and a public education campaign. Currently, 12 Bayer sites around the country operate local MSMS programs, which together represent a national volunteer corps of more than 1,000 employees.

"Bayer HealthCare's generous support of the New Jersey Governor's School in the Sciences will continue to expose high school students throughout the state to opportunities and future careers in the sciences," said Governor Chris Christie.  "I want to thank Bayer for its contribution to this worthwhile program.  It is the support of local companies like Bayer that is invaluable in helping promote scientific learning, problem solving skills and leadership training to students throughout the Garden State."
