Research Facilities and Instruments

Fully equipped for your research

Our research laboratory facilities are fully equipped for contemporary applications in biochemistry and molecular biology. Our laboratory facilities have undergone extensive renovation and provide students with a professional environment where students can meet informally to exchange ideas and discuss their research. The chemistry and physical sciences department houses a state-of-the-art DNA sequencing laboratory, and the Haskins Laboratories houses a pathogen handling suite equipped with BSL-2 hoods, HPLC-MS/MS for state-of-the-art analysis of metabolites, and provides a world class environment for student thesis research. The biology department houses a state-of-the-art microscopic facility.

Pace University's Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Program's laboratory facilities house state-of-the-art instruments.
