Description : Did you know that universities and research institutions are major biotechnology employers? And, did you know that shared research resource facilities (core labs) support modern research in these institutions and need an advanced technical workforce with the kinds of skills we teach our students? Core labs enable efficient and widespread access to state-of-the-art technologies and scientific expertise that have accelerated research for over 40 years. These technologies include genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, imaging, flow cytometry, and others to form the foundation of biotechnology research, development, and production. Many core lab directors and staff are members of the Association of ... Read more
