What happens here – James M. Jeffords Hall, a life sciences building, opened its doors to students in the fall of 2010. The building has been designed to promote interdisciplinary collaboration and to facilitate the study of plants, from molecular and cell biology to whole plant physiology to ecosystem and global ecology. Its faculty research labs and seven undergraduate teaching labs are cutting edge, full of state-of-the-art equipment. But it could be the living laboratory outside the building's walls that truly sets Jeffords Hall apart.
