[Source: GenomeWeb News] – Arizona’s Translational Genomics Research Institute plans to boost its workforce in the coming year, maintaining the double-digit pace of growth it highlighted in a recent economic impact study.

“It will be about 80 percent research investigation, about evenly divided between computational biology and wet labs, with really only about a fifth of the positions coming in the area of administrative project management,” Jeffrey Trent, TGen’s president and research director, told GenomeWeb Daily News earlier this week.

Phoenix-based TGen plans over the next 12 months to add some 35 workers directly related to its commercialization activities to its current staff of about 300 people, Tess Burleson, the institute’s chief operating officer, also told GWDN.
