New Diagnostic and Research Lab holds open house, WABI reports

WABI reported that the new University of Maine Cooperative Extension Diagnostic and Research Laboratory held an open house June 22, and quoted John Rebar, the lab’s executive director. The $8 million lab will improve the quality of scientific research done on site, and will provide educational opportunities for students. “We’ve supported crops, livestock, and we’ve done that with outdated facilities. Now we’re going to be able to do things with full-sized animals that we couldn’t do before because we couldn’t bring them into our lab. Now we can,” Rebar told WABI.
