TGen Tour January 24, 2024

 TGen founders welcomed the Historical League tour on Thursday, January 25. Dr. Jeffrey Trent and Dr. Daniel Von Hoff, honored as 2023 Arizona Historymakers, greeted us. Such a fascinating, amazing research center. They have made huge strides in the fight against cancers.

TGen mission: Medical Research Institute — We Are Dedicated To Conducting Groundbreaking Research With Life-Changing Results. We Research Cancer, Neurological Disorders, Infectious Disease & Rare Childhood Disorders.

TGen tour included visits to the many labs. Mary Perona took pictures and commented, “The guides explained the function of the labs so well, trying to keep it in laymen’s terms but . . . couldn’t help themselves with scientific and detailed terminology!”
TGen website: “Tour guests see first-hand the next-generation sequencing technology and biomedical research laboratories where TGen scientists unlock the mysteries of cancer, neurological disorders and infectious disease. TGen faculty and staff are eager to share TGen’s biomedical research and progress with the community.”

Outreach programs are important at TGen. High School students can have two weeks in the bioscience program and University students are offered summer internships.

Thanks to Mary and Susan Dale for the pictures.
