Utica, NY (05/30/2013)
- The Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties Inc. has granted $50,000 to Utica College for the renovations of the microbiology lab in Gordon Science Center.

These plans for these renovations have been years in the making, said Dr. Lawrence Aaronson, Harold T. Clark Jr. Professor of Microbiology. The objectives for the renovations are twofold. First is student safety; through the years, as the lab has accumulated more equipment, it has become less efficient and more difficult to maneuver. The new design will be much more efficient and ergonomic.

Second, the new lab will have space dedicated to student research. Some students will be able to research while other students can be engaged in silent study or work on different projects. The new equipment will also offer more safety features.

Now that the spring semester and commencement are over, construction on the project has begun.
