November 20, 2017

The Université de Saint-Boniface officially inaugurated a new, state-of-the-art microbiology laboratory last week. The space is configured for both teaching and research, and has advanced features such as an anteroom with automatic doors, a water filtration system, and specialized hoods. The construction of the lab was funded by nearly $1M in investments from the provincial government and USB. Peter Dorrington, USB’s vice-president of education and research, said that the opening of the laboratory is another sign that French science education is gaining momentum in Manitoba.
