New Teaching Lab ready for action

last modified Apr 16, 2014 02:24 PM

The new teaching lab is now available for undergraduate practicals, starting with a second year practical on the effects of morphogens on plant development. The lab has relocated to the space formerly occupied by the Herbarium, and represents an investment of £1.2 million in teaching facilities. The audio-visual equipment represents a significant upgrade to the previous facilities, with 6 large screens that can be independently controlled and connected to laboratory equipment such as microscopes for demonstrations. The refurbishment project also included providing wheelchair access to the lab and lecture theatres, so Plant Sciences teaching facilities are now fully accessible to all.

The Department has carried out a comprehensive COVID-19 risk assessment process and has opened to allow research work to take place. To ensure the safety of our staff, a range of measures to reduce building occupancy and allow strict social distancing have been introduced, including increased cleaning and hygiene regimes.
