Recently the Champlin foundation continued their generosity to the University of Rhode Island and to the Institute of Immunology and Informatics by donating a dual Agent Bioanalyzer platform to Dr. Alan Rothman’s lab.

“The Agilent Bioanalyzer will provide access to training in advanced equipment for students in quality control, an essential aspect of biotechnology manufacturing and molecular biology research. The hands-on laboratory experience with this industry-standard equipment will also give URI students a competitive advantage in applying for jobs in the growing biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries.The proposal was submitted by: Alan Rothman and Carey Medin of the Institute for Immunology and Informatics and Department of Cell and Molecular Biology; Greg Paquette, Department of Cell and Molecular Biology and URI Biotechnology Center; and Christina Befumo, URI Biotechnology Center.”
