The UNIFlow™ software platform, from UNIConnect, will be used for training in laboratory process management methods.

UNIConnect, L.C., announced today it will donate an innovative laboratory process management software platform for the life sciences to the George Washington University’s (GW) Computational Biology Institute (CBI).

UNIFlow™ is recognized as a process innovation tool, helping researchers and scientists manage the complexity of processes and volumes of data in the realm of "omic” sciences -- genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics.

According to Keith Crandall, founding director of the CBI, which is housed on GW’s Virginia Science and Technology Campus in Ashburn, Va., “We expect this technology to enhance our ability to train students in informatics and ‘big data’ management, making them more productive and more employable upon graduation. The UNIFlow platform provides a suite of capabilities to help advance scientific discovery. This technology, now part of the Computational Biology Institute, enhances our ability to collaborate with other research partners in the area and around the world to develop novel capabilities and effectively compete for new grant opportunities.”

UNIConnect founder William S. Harten said, “UNIConnect is honored to work with brilliant scientists and information technology professionals around the world. For our company, the gift and future collaboration with GW is a path to the future. We are excited and impressed by the creativity and innovative spirit of GW's CBI. When a student or principal investigator asks 'why?' we provide the supporting tools to answer the enabling question, "how?' Through this simple paradigm, science of vast complexity translates into manageable, reproducible processes. We are eager to see what inspired CBI students will conceive."

“We look at this gift as the beginning of a mutually beneficial relationship with UNIConnect,” said Tom Russo, assistant vice president for research in GW’s Office of Industry and Corporate Research. “It becomes the model for corporate and educational software strategic alignment. Our students are exposed to the latest technologies in a real-world environment and our faculty is able to utilize cutting-edge resources to conduct their research.”
