Description of Project
This project seeks to restructure the instructional laboratories in the Medical Sciences Building for histology, microbiology, neuroscience, and immunology to accommodate significant changes in the medical curriculum that have been gradually implemented since the original design of the building in the early 1970's. The most dramatic change in the curriculum is the increased dependence upon computer-based technology in the instructional environment.

Restructuring the instructional laboratory spaces will allow for consolidation of laboratory sessions and will provide space which facilitates meeting accreditation requirements. The reconfiguration will provide flexibility and multipurpose use in all laboratories, lecture and seminar space, as well as provide for state of the art technological upgrades. Work includes new wall, ceiling, and floor finishes, new lighting, enhances power and networking capabilities, computer projection capabilities, and built-in storage.
