This April, labs in the Department of Chemistry and the Institute for Molecular Engineering (IME) joined a competition to be the Safest Lab of 2019.
The Joint Research Safety Initiative (JRSI), a student and postdoc-run group, trained volunteers to walk through the twelve participating labs “looking both for safety mishaps and clever ingenuity.”
The winning labs earned not only the title but also a grand prize of $500 or two runner-up prizes of $250 to be used for a lab outing.
IME Runner-Up: Patel Group
PSD Runner-Up: Anderson Group
