Richard LaCoursier (B.S., Chemistry, Grand Valley State University) currently works as a Research Assistant for the Water Soluble Vitamin Department and eventually was accepted into the Scientific Leadership Program at Covance Laboratories, Inc. He is responsible for developing a HPLC method for Thiamine, reducing the overall analyst time by 50 percent, and reducing the cost of the assay by 66 percent.

He feels his career at Covance would be strengthened by his involvement in the M.S. in Biotechnology Program, and looks forward to learning with a new team to help develop as a scientist, as well as an individual.
