• When the 33-million-dollar B. Thomas Golisano Center for Integrated Sciences opened in the fall of 2013, it completely changed the way scientific research and learning happened at Niagara. The 50,000-square-foot integrated science center houses 18 laboratories, which are supported by designated areas for nuclear magnetic resonance, tissue culture, imaging, plant growth, radioisotope storage, and numerous other functions. In addition to the comprehensive laboratory space, the Golisano Center houses two classrooms on the first floor — a 56-seat lecture hall and a 20-seat seminar room. On the second floor is a 20-seat conference room. A “Science on Display” concept is an important component of the facility's design, with several mechanisms conceived to showcase the work of Niagara faculty and students.
