Laboratories for Interdisciplinary Studies in Emerging Sciences

The Laboratories for Interdisciplinary Studies in Emerging Sciences (ISES) - operated by the department of chemistry and biochemistry - represents the academic arm of the INVEST lab facility. Designed around the principle that physical science forms the foundation for the study of all natural phenomena, ISES will encourage basic interdisciplinary research in emerging sciences and technologies. A proximity to the incubator labs will facilitate interactions between RSC students and faculty with incubator employees.

As a result of the NSF CCLI grant based on INVEST and ISES (during the last three years), RSC students helped to develop 17 new nanoscience modules with input from the RSC faculty and incubator client scientific staff. Then, those same students participated in the dissemination of that material in the academic labs impacting students across disciplines.
