Graduate Labs

Graduate students in the Carmelo Rizzo laboratory, pictured below, develop synthetic strategies for the site-specific incorporation of nucleotides that are chemically modified by carcinogens into DNA.

Both research and teaching labs are planned on a 33' x 44' module. This module accommodates 8 to 12 graduate students in a research mode or 20 undergraduates in a teaching mode. The teaching floor, with labs for Organic Chemistry, Advanced Organic and Physical Chemistry, registers with the original building, where pre-labs are conducted.

Corridors interconnect the lab suite for sharing and for safety. At the center of the suite is the stockroom, which has wide corridors for informal discussions. The labs are organized with fume hoods at the perimeter and instruments at the center. The instrument area is wrapped by a stand-up height writing counter, which is networked for computers. This gives each student a write-up space opposite the fume hood.

Students are invited into teaching labs by an open stair which passes through the upper level of the lobby.
