This building and the subsequent infrastructure and instrumentation improvements to Tulane's campus will:
- Increase resources for undergraduate and graduate students
- Help attract and retain the best faculty
- Strengthen the School's capacity to generate innovative research that will lead to increases in tech transfer and local New Orleans business development
- Expand Tulane's integrated science and engineering curriculum
A new teaching laboratory and 5 new research laboratories - with the capacity for 8 more - will enable faculty and students to discover and create innovative solutions to the world's most pressing problems. Some of the labs envisioned include:
- advanced catalytic processes, bio-inspired materials, cell and tissue engineering, composite materials, environmental technology, gene delivery, nanoscale engineering and self-assembly, novel drug delivery systems, and photo-induced processes.
Challenge Grant Progress
We successfully raised $800,000 to fully fund the Challenge Grant, which meets construction costs for Floors 1 & 4. Stay tuned for exciting projects to be implemented in Floors 2 & 3!
