The Botulinum Research Center (BRC) was established by the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth under the leadership of Dr. Bal Ram Singh, professor of biophysical chemistry. BRC promotes research to create an understanding of the botulinum neurotoxins, their applications and the defenses against such toxins as biothreat agents.
BRC was initiated as a national effort, in collaboration with many researchers in academia, government agencies and industry. Currently, it has an international advisory board consisting of scientists from the UK, Japan, Italy, Germany and the US.
The state-of-the-art research building was opened on April 5, 2007. This two-story building houses world-class research facilities for Dr. Singh and for other research activities at UMass Dartmouth.
BRC Symposium and Workshop - August 14th - 16th, 2013
