Industry Scientists: Yale Wants You

Now corporate scientists can tap into the brainpower and technical expertise of Yale University cell biologists, thanks to a project just established at the university by its Office of Cooperative Research. For $20,000 (small businesses pay $10,000), members of the Cell Biology Liaison Program are able to visit the school of medicine’s cell biology department laboratories, attend an annual symposium held exclusively for subscribers, participate in technical training courses, and receive invitations to seminars, workshops, and special lectures held at the school. The endeavor permits corporate researchers to stay abreast of current developments in dermatology, cancer research, human genetics, and other areas for which Yale is noted, says Henry S. Lowendorf in the Office of Cooperative Research. For more information, contact: 252 JWG, RO. Box 6666, New Haven, Conn. 06511 (203) 432-3003.
