$3.5 Million Life Technologies Grant Will Help Train, Certify Forensic Scientists at UNT Health Science Center
Date:2/15/2011

FORT WORTH, Texas, Feb. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Center for Human Identification at the UNT Health Science Center recently received a three-year $3.5 million grant from Life Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ:  LIFE), a leader in forensic DNA testing systems, to train researchers from around the world in forensic DNA analysis techniques.  This first of its kind accelerated academic certification program will train forensic scientists in areas where DNA database legislation or DNA programs are being established  to process samples and populate databases worldwide for use in criminal investigations and identity verification.

Up to 12 students per session will earn eight credit hours of accelerated learning at the UNT Health Science Center's campus at Fort Worth, Texas.  The grant will help establish a hands-on, didactic operational lab with state-of-the-art equipment, teaching faculty and up to 20 fellowships.  The four-week program will give scientists the skills required to process DNA samples in countries where DNA database programs are growing at a faster rate than their ability to hire and train analysts to process samples.  

"Establishing the Center for Forensic Excellence at the University of North Texas Health Science Center provides the international forensic community access to one of the premier forensic laboratories and teaching facilities in the world," said Leonard Klevan, PhD, president of the Human Identification Business at Life Technologies.  "Life Technologies is proud to support this unique educational and training program in an effort to expand the use of forensic DNA testing on a global basis."

As part of the grant, Life Technologies will equip a state-of-the-art, high-throughput laboratory used to process single-source DNA reference samples.  The grant also provides for a faculty director a
