Research Groups

Often referred to as the heart and soul of the ABRF, Research Groups (RGs) are organized by ABRF members to advance specific biotechnologies and analytical techniques for the benefit of core and research laboratories. This is done primarily by developing research studies whereby participating laboratories can gauge their ability to perform a given analytical technique(s) and, importantly, to gauge the effectiveness of that technique or methodology in real laboratory situations. 

RG areas of expertise cover a wide range of biotechnologies - Please see the list of RG's below.  If you are interested in their research studies or want to become involved in a research group, please contact us
