Completion of the Rector Science Complex will not only reunite all members of the biology Department in one physical space, but it also will facilitate the exchange of ideas between faculty with similar and diverse interests. Often the ideas that generate the greatest progress originate from a different perspective that sparks a new way of thinking about a long-standing problem. I am looking forward to the exchange of ideas about my teaching and research among all of my colleagues in the Rector Science Complex.

The Rector Science Complex addition will unite the biology department with Dickinson's other science departments. The new space will provide additional state-of-the-art facilities and more opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration across the sciences.
The addition will include:
- more than 20,000 square feet of state-of-the-art research and teaching space
- an enclosed courtyard
- and additional study nooks.
The complex's existing vivarium will be upgraded and given improved HVAC controls as part of the project. By relocating the biology department, the addition also will open space in Dana Hall for the expansion of other faculty and academic programs.
