In response to the growing international threat of bioterrorism, the Forensic and National Security Sciences Institute (FNSSI) in The College of Arts and Sciences has established a state-of-the-art laboratory suite. A dedication ceremony for the facility will be held on Friday, Nov. 8, from 1-2:15 p.m. in SU’s Lyman Hall. The event is free and open to the public.
The ceremony will include remarks by SU Interim Chancellor and Vice Chancellor and Provost Eric F. Spina; George Langford, dean of The College of Arts and Sciences; James T. Spencer, associate dean of the college and executive director of FNSSI; David Knaebel, FNSSI Professor of Practice; and forensic science graduate student Stephanie Gladyck. Rounding out the program are guided tours of the suite, student poster presentations and a reception.
“The collective investments of the college and SU in forensics and national security sciences and in this suite, in particular, reflect our profound commitment to leveraging and building on our strengths across disciplines to create signature research opportunities and educational environments,” says Spina. “The FNSSI Laboratory Suite is a place where first-rate scholars, students and professionals from across a range of fields can collaborate to do great science and pursue novel solutions to complex, contemporary problems.”
