In response to a growing demand from across New Hampshire, UNH has expanded its state-of-the-art COVID-19 testing lab services beyond its campuses. In fall 2021, the lab was conducting tests for 45 long-term care facilities. The lab has also begun to handle tests for some K-12 schools, inlcuding Oyster River. See our COVID-19 lab at work.
Gov. Chris Sununu joined UNH President Jim Dean and university leaders to open the new Health Sciences Simulation Center in November. With major support from the state, the $9 million state-of-the-art facility will allow UNH to double the number of graduates in nursing and other clinical disciplines, filling critical needs in communities throughout the state.
Doubling our competitive research funding to a record $260 million, honoring our 2020 and 2021 graduates in-person and celebrating our partnerships with the state of New Hampshire to open the Health Sciences Simulation Center were just a few highlights from 2021.
