History: The dream began 28 years ago as Alynne was graduating from college. She had a passion for biochemistry and a strong desire to help those in developing countries. As she searched for a university for graduate studies, she learned about a technology called enzyme immunoassays (EIA) that are quick, easy, and sensitive; able to detect infantile gastroenteritis, a leading cause of infant deaths in underdeveloped countries; and rapid and rugged tests that can be performed on site. Alynne saw this technology as the way to use her chemistry skills to help people in developing countries, so she specialized in EIAs. In 2001, after years of developing EIAs for pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, Alynne founded Science with a Mission, Inc. The dream has spread to include Directors, Officers, volunteers, prayer partners and financial partners.
