The Atrium in the Center for Natural Sciences is a gathering place for STEM students
Biology majors at Illinois Wesleyan have access to state-of-the-art facilities in
the Center for Natural Science, Learning and Research.
These facilities include
eight biology teaching laboratories and eight faculty/student research labs.
All of our
laboratory equipment and facilities are available for student use, including molecular-techniques instrumentation, a scanning
electron microscope, a Nikon interference phase contrast and fluorescence microscope,
and a video data collection system.
