Biology, Chemistry, and Biochemistry Instruments

Students have the benefit of working in specialized teaching and research laboratories with state-of-the-art instrumentation. Teaching labs are well equipped with high quality microscopes audio/visual teaching tools and other specialized equipment. Many courses have their own dedicated labs, while other labs are shared by two or three courses with similar equipment requirements. Most faculty members also maintain labs where they work with students on original research.
