A visit to science utopia: New England Biolabs!

Alumni, Erin Reinhart, is interning at NEB this summer before she is off to Dartmouth College for her doctoral studies in Chemistry.  I was invited to give a talk about our research and I got the opportunity to visit Erin and her research advisor, Lana Saleh.   WOW!  NEB is an amazing place with amazing people and cutting-edge science!   Its like Disneyland for scientists!

The NEB building has received a LEED certification and a Sustainable Building Design Award. All waste from the building (except radioactive) is recycled, composted, or treated through an onsite solar green algae & root filtering system before returning to the water table.

Erin and I pose with a statue of the NEB founder and owner, Donald Comb. From the stories I’ve heard, Dr. Comb is a mixture of Jesus, Elvis, and Einstein.
