Outreach to Students

Laboratory Outreach

The Laboratory Outreach Program (LOP), within the PPRC, is responsible for enhancing and developing relationships with both internal and external partners through collaborative planning, educational programs, training and other methods, to facilitate development of an integrated public health/private sector laboratory network. This program, in collaboration with the National Laboratory Training Network (NLTN), develops and coordinates training programs for clinical and public health laboratories on topics of medical, scientific and regulatory significance, which directly impact public health practice. Additionally, the LOP provides members of the New Jersey Laboratory Response Network (LRN), a statewide network of comprehensive microbiology laboratories, a mechanism for rapid exchange of information regarding their role in emergency.
