ESU Receives Money for Tick Research Lab
SMITHFIELD TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Scientists at East Stroudsburg University's Northeast Wildlife DNA Lab test ticks year round. But thanks to state taxpayer money, they will now further their research and surveillance by starting a State Tick Research Lab. "We were able to secure a half million dollars from the state to start funding our free tick testing service here at the DNA lab," said Nicole Chinnici, Northeast Wildlife DNA Lab Director.
