SLAS Members Collaborate to Manage a Pandemic

The past two years have proven “impossible” is not a word used by the SLAS community. SLAS members illustrated a new era of opportunity and advancement in science. They explored, learned, hired, trained and worked tirelessly to change the global pandemic into something manageable, and collaborated to save lives. Listen to and read the stories of just a few of our members who had critical roles in the pandemic response, from building new testing facilities and new diagnostics, to enabling and producing a vast amount of storage and automation capabilities. This is SLAS.
