April 22-26: Lab Week

University to mark Medical Laboratory Professionals Week


1:40 p.m., April 16, 2013--The University of Delaware will celebrate Medical Laboratory Professionals Week from April 22-26 with a special lunch for junior medical laboratory science students as well as with games and prizes.

Medical Laboratory Professionals Week is an annual celebration of the laboratory professionals and pathologists who play a vital role in every aspect of health care. Since they often work behind the scenes, few people know about the critical testing they perform every day.

Campus Stories

Gathering space

Students in a landscape construction materials class taught by Anna Wik of UD's College of Agriculture and Natural Resources recently helped colleagues from the English Language Institute construct a set of benches to help with seating for classes and events at the Community Garden.

BME Grad Fair

The Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Delaware hosted the inaugural Mid-Atlantic BME Grad Fair on Nov. 14 in the Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Laboratory.

  • Student Health Services, where they staff the clinical laboratory and perform laboratory analyses on students who require medical care.
