Groundbreaking for Carver lab is Saturday

by Teddi Barron
Ceremonial groundbreaking for the Roy J. Carver Co-Laboratory will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 20, north of the Communications Building. The university community is invited.

The new $12.75 million facility is the first building of the Plant Sciences Institute. It is named for the Roy J. Carver Charitable Trust, Muscatine, which gave the lead gift of $3 million.

When completed in the spring of 2003, the three-story, 45,000-square-foot building will house laboratories, research space for visiting scientists and small laboratories for business incubators. The Roy J. Carver Co-Laboratory will include a genomics laboratory with seed analysis facility and plant growth chambers, biochemistry laboratory suites, laser laboratories, a computer laboratory and administrative offices.
