Dr. Herbert Stahnke developed a controversial antivenin serum for scorpion stings in the 1930s. The lab, founded in the early 1940s as part of the biology department, researched poisonous animals. Although the center closed in 1972, the antivenin was still produced by the Anti-Virus Laboratory in the Department of Microbiology as late as 1995.
