Overview of Services

The Department of Biology’s newly created collaborative learning/research space, bio[box], provides undergraduate, graduate, and faculty researchers with the space, tools, and instrumentation to facilitate collaborative learning and research. Tools and instruments range from the very simple (e.g., measuring tapes for field work) to the state of the art. The aim of this facility is to give students the opportunity to explore the cutting edge of biological research with the support and guidance of our faculty. It is our hope that this space will foster scientific creativity, independence, and serendipity by enabling students to work on their own projects alongside faculty engaged in groundbreaking cross-disciplinary collaborative research. bio[box] is an unstaffed user facility; researchers at all levels must receive training on our instrumentation before they may use the facility. Undergraduate projects must be sponsored by a faculty member from the Department of Biology.
