Dedicated in October 2002, over thirty percent of the facility's 88,000 square feet is devoted solely to areas where students and professors can work hand-in-hand conducting research in biology and chemistry. Juniata students will be introduced to the latest technology and equipment, including laboratories for cell and tissue culture, atomic and magnetic resonance spectroscopy and chromatography, as well as a biological separations room.
The building contains a microcomputer laboratory, lecture halls, seminar rooms, faculty and secretarial offices, study lounges, a darkroom and many other support spaces. The center is further graced by a reception center that will offer a natural assembly area that can be used by the entire campus for gatherings.
