Spotlight on Emory’s Rollins School of Public Health

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Thu, Jul 18, 2013

Lab suppliers interested in marketing life science solutions and university lab equipment at Atlanta life science marketing events may want to take a closer look at Emory University’s Rollins School of Public Health as a potential sales market.
