BEAVERLODGE ­ Grande Prairie Regional College
(GPRC) unveiled plans today for the expansion of
their National Bee Diagnostic Centre - Technology
Access Centre (NBDC-TAC) located in Beaverlodge
that has been in operation since 2013.
Director of GPRC Research & Innovation Dr. Bruce
Rutley unveiled the expansion plans and explained
the ultimate objective is to establish the College's
NBDC-TAC as a leader in bee diagnostics. At its
current size, NBDC-TAC is unable to keep up with
demand for its diagnostic services. The expansion
will increase capacity and help facilitate regional
and international partnerships according to Rutley.
Applied Scientist and Manager of GPRC's NBDC-
TAC, Dr. Carlos Castillo, said he is excited for the
project to get underway. "It will be a significant
growth of lab space," he said. Castillo added that
with the expansion, NBDC-TAC will be able to triple
the number of diagnostics they perform per year.
"We have come a long way, but there's still much
more to do," said Castillo.
