Each year, the Joy Cappel Scholarship will award two life sciences students with $2,500 each. The scholarship is intended to foster a new generation of researchers and help support these young investigators in their scientific training. For more than 30 years, Rockland was guided by Joy Cappel, President and CEO. Mrs. Cappel’s vision to help define mechanisms underlying cell function and disease through antibody targeted detection is the motivational force behind this scholarship.
