Joseph, Tita and Don Monti Genetics Lab
Located in Pell Hall/Life Science on the C.W. Post Campus of Long Island University, the Joseph, Tita and Don Monti Genetics Lab serves as a genetics/embryology teaching laboratory for students in the Department of Biology and in the M.S. in Genetic Counseling program. The lab features audio/visual and wireless capabilities and state-of-the-art computer workstations for visualization of diagnostic images in order to understand developmental abnormalities and their appearance during gestation.
The facility is named in memory of husband and wife, Joseph and Tita Monti, and their son, Don, who died of myeloblastic leukemia at the age of 16. The lab was constructed in 2010 with a donation from the Don Monti Memorial Research Foundation, which has been recognized as the premier organization dedicated to research, education, fellowship and patient care in the fields of oncology and hematology in the Long Island/Tri-State area.
