RIVERSIDE, Calif. — On Friday, Nov. 1, the University of California, Riverside celebrated the opening of the second phase of the Neil A. Campbell Science Learning Laboratory with a reception attended by about 50 people.  Located in the University Laboratory Building, the Neil A. Campbell Science Learning Laboratory is named after a well-known biologist, author, and UC Riverside alumnus.

The lab is home to “The Dynamic Genome,” a laboratory-intensive learning program.  In addition to offering unique research experiences to freshmen and other undergraduate students, the Campbell Learning Lab provides outreach to local K-12 science teachers and students.  The second phase of the lab will allow the lab to reach out to more students.

At the reception, Chancellor Kim Wilcox, CNAS Dean Marylynn Yates and Distinguished Professor of Genetics Susan Wessler delivered brief remarks to acknowledge donor Rochelle Campbell, who was also present at the reception and whose generous contributions helped fund the laboratory as well as the recent expansion project.  The speakers highlighted the difference that the Learning Lab has already made to undergraduate students’ research experience and the excellent fit that UCR has been for the lab.
