GCB to host open house at the Chesterfield Building

Please join us at the Chesterfield Building on February 2, from 3 -5 P.M., to celebrate the new home of two of our core facilities: Sequencing & Genomic Technologies Shared Resource and Proteomics & Metabolomics Shared Resource.

We invite you to tour the new facilities; hear from Vice Dean Raphael Valdivia; listen to short presentations by Duke investigators; and visit vendor booths. A happy hour will follow.

We are now accepting applications for vouchers for the Sequencing and Genomic Technologies Shared Resource and the Proteomics and Metabolomics Shared Resource. Application deadline is January 31 at 5 P.M. Winners will be announced at the Open House. A member of the lab must be present at the time of the announcement to accept the voucher. Labs are eligible for one voucher only.

Getting here:

  • The Chesterfield Building is located at 701 W. Main St.
  • Parking passes will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Contact Floyd Borden for additional information and to reserve your pass.
