A lab for all diseases
A new $70 million laboratory in College Park will revolutionize the way disease and medicine research is conducted, according to those who will use it.
The Bioscience Research Building, a state-of-the-art laboratory and teaching facility being dedicated today at the University of Maryland, College Park, will house laboratories for 12 different specialties on one floor, said Dr. David Mosser. Mosser is founding director of the Maryland Pathogen Research Institute which includes the other labs.
"It's really a multi-disciplinary facility, combining computer sciences, bioengineering, nanoscience research," Mosser said. "We're doing things no other medical school can do."
