On Monday, June 7, 2021, Cooper opened its new, state-of-the-art molecular laboratory in the E&R building.  The laboratory is funded in part by a $5.1 million dollar grant from the State of New Jersey, and aims to increase capacity for COVID-19 testing, as well as expand Cooper’s capability to test for other emerging diseases.  Dr. Tina Edmonston is the Medical Director and Sean Carey is the Manager.

Many thanks go out to the project team, led by Nancy Narvell with the support of Bob Hockel and senior administration, for their hard work.
