PRI receives $350,000 in NSF stimulus funds
October 20, 2010
The Paleontological Research Institution (PRI) has been awarded a $350,000 grant from the National Science Foundation's Academic Research Infrastructure grant program to create four state-of-the-art science labs by summer 2011. Including this grant, PRI has received more than $1 million in funding from the NSF as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
Each of the new laboratories will have a unique function. BioLab, for "clean" activities using microscopes and chemicals, and PaleoLab, an area for "dirty" geological procedures, such as rock sawing and sieving sediment, will be basic, flexible, general-use spaces.
