Pharmacist opens eyes of future generations

RETIRED pharmacist Robert Lazzarini and his wife Diane from Wagga Wagga in NSW have generously donated $25,000 to Charles Sturt University’s School of Biomedical Sciences, in order for the institution to acquire a state-of-the-art microscope system. Unveiled this week, the system, according to Professor of Rural Pharmacy, Patrick Ball, has a fully integrated digital imaging system and replaces a vintage 1962 monocular microscope. “We anticipate this will support a range of research activities within the School for at least another 10 to 15 years,” he said. “This will make existing projects much easier and quicker compared to the previous system, and will provide support for a range of possible projects in the School that the previous system could not,” he added.
