“It will be a historic achievement for UNH,” Sedam said. Sedam said they were able to accomplish this without a medical or pharmacy school. According to a press release by Lisa Greiner, Sedam and his team will take over functions overseen by Industrial Liaison, which was created to promote the commercial development of innovations developed at NYU Langone Health, NYU, and NYU Tandon School of Engineering and to facilitate research collaborations between NYU researchers and industry partners.
In all, 700,000 samples were taken during the academic year. The lab cost about $5 million to set up. If the students lived on campus, they were able to quarantine in two dorms set aside for that purpose.
“We actually never closed. There were lots of other campuses which had great labs and they did great work, but they had outbreaks that caused them to close for a period of time. We never did. We had a ten-day pause at the beginning of the spring semester, where things got a little shaky, but the students are super responsible, and they understood they had to stay vigilant,” Sedam said during an interview this week. Sedam was instrumental in the work of the COVID-19 testing lab at UNH Health & Wellness. Students were tested two times a week and those who tested positive for the virus were quarantined.

Widawsky, executive vice president, vice dean and chief financial officer said in a statement.
