Jared Auclair for Northeastern
In order to promote the safety of the Northeastern community, the university has created a separate testing facility on Huntington Avenue for students who exhibit symptoms of the illness. The Huntington Testing Center is where all symptomatic students—including those on co-op—will be tested, upon referral by a medical professional.
Thousands of coronavirus swabs from Northeastern’s Boston campus end up in the Life Sciences Testing Center. Jared Auclair, an associate teaching professor of biotechnology, is at the helm. “All of my efforts are turned towards maintaining quality while scaling up our effort,” he says. “If we’re not going to produce quality results, there’s no point.”
