Stevens Institute of Technology Opens Biotechnology and Drug–Discovery Laboratory



The Center for Healthcare Innovation at Stevens Institute of Technology will open its Biotechnology and Drug-Discovery Laboratory in January 2014 as a new biotechnology and drug discovery enterprise that will partner with other Stevens faculty, students, and external academic and industry collaborators. Established in part with a donation of equipment and supplies from Hoffmann-La Roche and support from the New Jersey Department of Labor, seven former Roche personnel recently joined Stevens as faculty and researchers in this new initiative. Laboratory staff also includes three new professors with R&D experience in pharmaceutical and biotechnology corporate laboratories. The laboratory will serve as a center for research in the areas of preclinical gene cloning and purification of therapeutic proteins, assay development, and robotic drug screening.
