Wolfe HallWolfe Hall

Wolfe Hall houses state-of-the-art research laboratories for the Department of Biological Sciences, Chemistry & Biochemistry and the College of Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences. The facility cost $33 million dollars and was dedicated in 1998. Wolfe Hall is adjacent to Bowman-Oddy Laboratories, which houses Environmental Sciences faculty.   

Amanda looking in microscopeFaculty members in Biological Sciences have their research labs on the third and fourth floors of Wolfe Hall and/or Bowman Oddy. Graduate and undergraduate students work side-by-side with our faculty in these labs to conduct research on a wide-variety of important topics. 

The College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics Instrumentation Center (I-Center) contains additional equipment available for biological research, including a Western Blot Imager, Mass Spectrometer and Dynamic Light Scattering Particle Analyzer. (Instrumentation available in the I-Center)

Biological Sciences Teaching Labs

The south wing of Bowman-Oddy is home to the Medical Laboratory Science Program undergraduate teaching labs. Additional Biological Sciences teaching labs are located on the east and central corridors of Wolfe Hall. Each pair of students has access to a computer to collect data, graph results or capture digital images. Our labs also contain a plethora of new equipment and are designed for easy student movement and flow within the space. A new project-based laboratory space was also built in the central Wolfe Hall corridor for Biological Sciences undergraduates.
