Message from the Director

Caroline Tancredy

In mid-March of 2020, our students left campus for spring break with the ominous possibility that they may not be coming back to the department and their labs in the near future. In a department that enjoys a hearty research momentum, the idea of suspending research seemed absurd. We went home and began to plan for the unimaginable scenario of changing our research agendas.
