HudsonAlpha Alumni Association

Public education is an essential component of the Institute’s mission to accelerate discoveries from the laboratories into real-world benefits. It is our goal to do everything we can to create a genomics-literate workforce and society because the future of medicine, agriculture and public health is being revolutionized by the things we are learning from our in-depth studies of DNA.

The HudsonAlpha Alumni Association is a way to delve deeper into genomics and its rapid developments. If you have completed a Biotech session at HudsonAlpha, you are invited to become a member. Members will enjoy new, exclusive educational programming opportunities beyond Biotech 201 and a stronger relationship with the Institute.

When you join, you will be supporting the mission of HudsonAlpha’s Educational Outreach. The field of biotechnology, particularly as it relates to genomics and DNA-based discoveries, is growing exponentially. We are on the threshold of a world where biotechnology influences daily decisions about foods we eat, energy we use, the ways we monitor the world, and choices we make about health and well-being. To responsibly evaluate these choices we need a society that is well-educated about DNA, the role of genetics in disease and the impact of biotechnology on agriculture, medicine and the environment. It is imperative, then, that we continue to offer public education classes.

Your tax-deductible membership comes with extra privileges. Dr. Neil Lamb, the Vice President for Educational Outreach, will host two educational events a year exclusively for members of the HudsonAlpha Alumni Association. The first is an overview of the 2014-15 guidebook, detailing the latest in biotechnology discoveries and applications.

We sincerely hope you will join the HudsonAlpha Alumni Association and that you take advantage of this opportunity to outwardly demonstrate your support for our education efforts. Please support those who wish to follow in your footsteps by helping us to continue to offer this high level of education free of charge. Your support will also help us as we grow this community into the epicenter of biotechnology in the Southeast.
