(A) Anonymous Science Balcony
A key architectural feature of the building with its vaulted roof and views into the Science Courtyard and Science Quad, the Science Balcony will open from the Aerie. Anonymous Dedication.

(B) Gavin Aerie
Perched above the Atrium this meeting room has views onto the Science Couryard and the Science Quad. The Aerie was donated by the Gavin Family.

(C) Molecular Biology Research Suite: $40,000
Research in the lab will focus on bacteria and their roles in different ecosystems. Students collaborate with faculty on research projects using molecular approaches to answer questions relating to environmental microorganisms.

(D) Main Stairway
The open stairway going from the Atrium to the second floor.

(E) Genetics Research Suite: $40,000
This suite will provide space for joint student/faculty research programs in developmental genetics, signal transduction, and molecular biology. It will feature multiple microscope workstations, an anesthetic delivery system, cryostat sectioning for histology, and equipment for DNA amplification and analysis. Functional adjacencies include the Molecular Imaging Suite and Genetics Teaching Laboratory.

(F) Good Family Molecular Imaging Suite
This space will provide state-of-the-art technology for courses and research in genetics, molecular biology, and cell biology. Cutting edge instrumentation will include a confocal laser scanning microscope as well as epifluorescent microscopy for detailed examination of cell and subcellular structure. A cooled CCD gel imaging system will allow students and faculty to visualize and document experiments in molecular genetics, biochemistry, and immunology. Donated by Deborah J. Good.

(G) Genetics Lab: $50,000
This lab will provide space for classical and advanced molecular genetics courses. State-of-the-art instrumentation for microscopy, DNA amplification, and molecular biology will facilitate inquiry-based learning. Computer and microscope projection capabilities will allow for dynamic and interactive presentations. Seating is designed for lab, group and lecture activities.

(H) Microbiology Lab: $50,000
In this laboratory, students are involved in the identification of microbes by colonial and microscopic features, biochemical properties and antibiotic sensitivities. Advanced labs include serological and immunological determinations which detect antigen-antibody interactions.

(I) Marletta Conference Room
Donated by Dr. Michael Marletta '73.

(J) Anatomy/Physiology Lab: $50,000
This teaching laboratory utilizes sophisticated data acquisition hardware/software that allows students to perform a comprehensive suite of physiological experiments, analyze resulting data and prepare reports, greatly enhancing their understanding and learning of complex systems. Additionally, the lab is set up to allow for traditional and computer-enhanced anatomical investigations, and incorporates a video feed from the instructor bench to monitors on the student benches allowing the instructor to demonstrate features much more effectively.

(K) Biochemistry and Principles II Lab: $50,000
This lab will provide space for the Principles of Biology II (introductory cell and molecular lab course) and Biochemistry. Students will work on the isolation and characterization of nucleic acids and proteins. Both laboratories are designed to provide students with hands-on experiences learning techniques and applications for research in the biochemical and molecular field.

(L) Clean Room: $5,000
The laminar flow hood and inverted phase microscope will support cell culture research and teaching labs.

(M) Research Lab: $30,000

(N) Administrative Suite: $30,000
Centrally located, the administrative suite encourages inter-departmental interaction and easy student access.

(O) Director Pre-Health Professions Office: $7,500

(P) Yudenfreund-Sujka Biology Chair Office
Donated by Dr. Shari Yudenfreund-Sujka '78 in honor of Drs. Kevin Fox and Allen Benton

(Q) Chemistry & Biochemistry Chairman Office: $10,000

(R) Office of the Director of the Science Education Partnership: $7,500

(S) Research Lab: $25,000

(T) Carnahan–Jackson Foundation Research Lab
This lab was donated by the Carnahan-Jackson Foundation.

(U) Research Lab: $25,000

(V) Research Lab: $25,000

(FO) Faculty Offices: $10,000
Faculty offices will be paired and placed between teaching and research labs.

(W1-W5) Study Alcoves: $5,000
In front of each office pair, spaces will be furnished with benches and writing boards, allowing for informal teaching.
