A large multistory atrium curates movement

Seen on the web, an architectural appreciation of the Shapiro Science Center:


A large multistory atrium curates movement through the building. Conceived of as a river, the atrium exists as a linear element that allows for quick transit through and into the building while remaining isolated from the sensitive lab spaces within the structure.

The web also reveals a panoramic view of the atrium.

recent papers by undergraduate alumni

We like to keep track of what our alumni are up to. Listed below, some recent papers showing what our undergraduate researchers from years past who are hitting their academic stride (grads from 7-14 years ago)  are up to now.

If you are an alum of the Brandeis Sciences, and would like to share what you are up to, email karel @ brandeis dot edu or join the Brandeis Sciences group at linkedin.com

Enjoying the view

A visitor checks out the view from the top of the new Shapiro Science building. Learn more about the species sharing the suburban environment with us from the Electronic Field Guides assembled by Dan Perlman’s Field Biology classes.

Kalman building disassembly

The old Kalman building in the process of disassembly. My old office is at bottom left.

According to a sign next to the plaque in the new building, Kalman opened in 1957, and two generations of scientists were trained there. The story of one Kalman lab is told here.

Ok, most Brandeis students don’t get to sail around the world in a wooden boat. On the other hand, over the last several years, Dan Perlman‘s Field Biology classes have produced some very nice field guides about Brandeis and its environs. In honor of Darwin’s birthday, we present:
