University Of Delaware Celebrates New Laboratory

Posted: Updated:

NEWARK, Del. (AP) - University of Delaware officials are celebrating the school's first new laboratory in nearly 20 years.
    
President Patrick Harker helped cut the ribbon Thursday to open the 194,000-square-foot, $132 million Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Laboratory building. The school hopes housing many disciplines, including the humanities, under one roof will encourage innovation.
    
The building features two wings connected by a catwalk. In one wing there are classrooms and educational laboratories and the other wing houses professional laboratories and office space for researchers. Officials hope to attract business to the state by offering access to high-tech labs and equipment, including a rare 10,000-square-foot nanofabrication laboratory.
    
Harker says the advanced technology, classrooms and individual lab rooms are expected to be a draw for out-of-state talent.
