Penn State Harrisburg dedicated $1.6M research center

Penn State Harrisburg on Thursday dedicated a $1.6 million biotechnology center, the only one of its kind in the region, Chancellor Mukund Kulkarni said.

The center has a laboratory and greenhouse for biofuel research, according to the school’s website.

The 3,000-square-foot lab is equipped for students and faculty to experiment with plant tissues, genetic engineering and molecular biology, the school said.

The 1,500-square-foot greenhouse is climate controlled around the clock and certified by the National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Department of Agriculture to grow genetically altered plants, according to the website.

“Creation of the facility, a valuable resource now in Central Pennsylvania, was made possible through a partnership between the business sector, state government and higher education,” Kulkarni said on the school’s website.
