Visiting Us

Chemistry Building 1973

A massive reinforced-concrete frame infilled with panels of Flemish-bond brickwork to convey the serious purpose of modern scientific work. The 1973 Wing contains the Chemistry Library.

Vagelos Laboratories

The Roy and Diana Vagelos Laboratories provide Penn with 102,000 square feet of new facilities for cutting-edge research in bioengineering, chemistry, chemical engineering, and medicine. The building houses two interdisciplinary research centers: The Institute for Medicine and Engineering (IME) on the lower levels and the Center for Excellence in Chemistry and Engineering on the second through fifth levels.

The infrastructure of the Vagelos Labs has been designed to adapt to rapidly advancing technologies: it includes molecular lab units within large, open spaces and the capacity to easily reconfigure services, systems, and equipment. Special features of the laboratories include extensive capacity, vibration control, stray-field interference control, and self-cleaning research areas.
