We're MOVING - May 2013 to the North Power Plant!
As part of the asbestos removal project in the H.M. Tory building, the first floor of Tory including the Population Research Laboratory will be decanted elsewhere on campus while asbestos removal and reconstruction for the first floor is completed during the spring and summer of 2013. We will be relocated temporarily in the North Power Plant on the main campus during this period. We hope to back in our original 1966 location in the Fall of 2013.
