Nearly 30 future volunteers turned out for the institute’s first-ever volunteer workshop.  Earlier this month, these ‘Partners of Progress’ learned more about HudsonAlpha’s three-fold mission of genomic research, educational outreach and economic development.  They also enjoyed an extensive tour of the 270,000 square foot facility.

While these individuals come from different backgrounds with different strengths, their reasons for helping are the same: They want to make a difference for HudsonAlpha and our community. The HudsonAlpha team is looking forward to providing opportunities that will allow these volunteers  support the HudsonAlpha mission.  Volunteers work on behalf of the institute, participating in everything from event support to fundraising.
