The Roy & Diana Vagelos Laboratories of
From early experiments with electricity to today's pioneering work in gene therapy, the University of Pennsylvania has a distinguished record of innovative research across a broad scientific spectrum. On November 10, 1997, this history of scientific progress at Penn opens a new chapter with The Roy & Diana Vagelos Laboratories of the Institute for Advanced Science and Technology.
The Vagelos Laboratories provide Penn with 102,000
square feet of new,
critically needed space for cutting-edge research in bioengineering, chemistry, chemical engineering, and medicine. The facility will house two interdisciplinary research centers: The Institute for Medicine and Engineering on the lower level and the first floor, and The Center for Excellence in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering on the second through fifth floors. The infrastructure of the Vagelos Laboratories has been designed to adapt to fast-changing technologies: It features modular lab units within large open spaces and the capacity to easily reconfigure services, systems, and equipment as knowledge and technology advance.
The Institute for Advanced Science and Technology
(IAST) embodies Penn's
ambitious strategy to maintain unparalleled leadership in scientific and technological research in the next century. The IAST is an invaluable resource for the nation and the world, speeding the pace of scientific and technological discovery and the conversion of new knowledge to practical use.
Postdoctoral, graduate, and undergraduate students
will have expanded interdisciplinary research opportunities in these new
laboratories. They will work with state-of-the-art equipment using the most
modern methods and techniques.They will also have greater access to the
senior researchers who manage the major research projects in the IAST. As
a training ground for young scientists, health researchers, and engineers,
the IAST begin--through The Roy & Diana Vagelos Laboratories--to launch
tomorrow's research today.
