Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
ANNANDALE-ON-HUDSON, N.Y., May 9, 2014 — Bard College has won a three-year, $500,000 Scientific Equipment Program grant from the Sherman Fairchild Foundation for the creation of a new microscopy suite to enhance undergraduate science programs.

The funding will allow for four lasers, two optical microscopes and two scanning probe microscopes for the new suite, located in the Gabrielle H. Reem and Herbert J. Kayden Center for Science and Computation. This new equipment will add to the college’s recent purchase of a scanning electron microscope.

“The microscopy equipment that this grant provides will allow the most cutting-edge research to be conducted in chemistry, biology and physics, both in class and in the research labs,” said Brooke A. Jude, assistant professor of biology. “Programs will now be able to provide interdisciplinary courses on microscopy techniques, and students and faculty alike will be able to utilize these techniques firsthand to make gains in research goals.”
