U OF L INVITES ENTIRE COMMUNITY TO BIOSAFETY LAB CELEBRATION
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The University of Louisville has invited the entire community to attend a groundbreaking celebration for its Center for Predictive Medicine at 1 p.m. April 9 on Shelby Campus.
Construction will start later this month on the 37,000-square-foot regional biosafety lab, which is expected to be up and running by early 2009. Scientists at the $34.6 million research lab will work to develop vaccines and other countermeasures for bioterrorism and emerging infectious diseases.
UofL President James Ramsey will emcee the event in 218 Founders Union Building. Refreshments and free shuttle rides to and from the lab construction site will be available through 2:30 p.m.
