Lab Technician on the Frontlines
Her testing ground
What does it take for a public research university to establish its own state-of-the-art COVID-19 testing lab in a matter of months? An institutional commitment to innovation. World-class scientific expertise. And incredible people. At UNH, where one of our proudest academic traditions is involving undergraduates in research, a number of those incredible people happen to be students. One of them is Julia Dusseault. At the height of the pandemic, powered by her love of the lab and UNH, she said yes to using her biomedical skillset as a lab technician– and keeping her peers safe.
