QUINCY 3/13/2014 – Quincy College has received a $500,000 grant to benefit the school’s biotechnology and compliance program.
On Wednesday, the college announced that the grant, from the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center, a quasi-public agency, will help the program continue training students on single-use biomanufacturing equipment used by today’s scientists.
Last summer, the school launched its biotechnology and compliance program by opening a state-of-the-art lab in Saville Hall, part of the college’s Quincy Center campus. Quincy College, the only municipally owned college in the state, is a two-year school serving about 4,600 students at its Quincy and Plymouth campuses.
The new lab was funded by a $3 million federal grant and a $100,000 grant from the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center.
