2010 - Equipment Grants and Research Lab Renovation

Two Grants ($100,000.00 from the Community Foundation and $50,000.00 from the Alden Trust) allowed us to update equipment in several labs including extensive renovation of the light pollution and behavior research core labs in GSC180.

2007 - Anatomy Lab Construction

Two new biology labs were added during the Construction of Romano Hall: ROM301 Anatomy and Physiology and ROM302 Gross Anatomy (shared with PT program). Addition of the new Anatomy and Physiology Lab allowed us to move our dissection classes (BIO212 General Biology II, BIO436 Biology of Vertebrates, and BIO437 Biology of Invertebrates) to GSC197 where there is over-bench ventilation.

2004 - New Research Equipment

$1,780,000.00 Science Infrastructure Grant from NASA funded purchase of new research equipment by Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Geology.
