The new Health, Science and Technology building (HST) has been bustling with activity this week as faculty and staff start moving in.
The move includes relocating 32 faculty members and 15 labs from existing areas on campus, including the College of Health (which opened in Fall 2020), the P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and the College of Arts and Sciences.
Labs came to life as students helped professors unload boxes of pipettes and beakers, and workers calibrated sensitive equipment like spectrometers, microscopes and rheometers.
“We are one of the first labs to move in, so it’s kind of a blank slate. There’s lots of boxes and lots of chaos, but it’s exciting,” said Angela Brown, an assistant professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering who had several Ph.D. students helping her move her lab into the second level of HST.
