Two BioE labs have been recognized with 2018 Excellence in Lab Safety awards from the campus Office of Environment, Health & Safety. Professor Amy Herr’s lab received the award for a Large Life Sciences lab, and Professor Phil Messersmith’s for a Large Physical Sciences lab. Keeping our researchers healthy so they can do healthy science!
Each year, EH&S and the Office of the Vice Chancellor of Research formally recognize eight labs that demonstrate outstanding safety cultures. It takes both continuous attention and shared responsibility to uphold safety standards in our campus research facilities. This award program acknowledges and lifts up the hard work that principal investigators, lab safety coordinators, staff, and researchers play in ensuring that safety is part of science.
