Edwards-Holman Science Center (EHS)

Biology students receive individual attention

Built in 1994 the Edwards-Holman Science Center (EHS) is home to the Department of Biology & Chemistry. EHS was largely designed by the department faculty and to this day continues to be a first-class facility in which our students can learn and prepare for a wide variety of scientific disciplines.

Lower-division teaching lab

Courses such as BIOL 100, BIOL 221, and BIOL 222 are taught in our lower-division teaching lab. We cap our lower-divisions labs at 20 students so that we can provide a good level of individual attention to each student. (see picture)

Cellular & molecular laboratory

Courses such as BIOL 350, BIOL 370, BIOL 410, and BIOL 420 are taught in our cellular and molecular lab. Behind the white board in the front of the lab is a small cell/molecular research room where students can learn and use cutting-edge technology. (see picture 1, picture 2)

Anatomy & physiology laboratory

Courses such as BIOL 322, BIOL 331, BIOL 332, and BIOL 333 are taught in our anatomy and physiology laboratory. This lab is designed for teaching surgical techniques associated with our upper-division physiology offerings and houses our cadavers which are central to our teaching of human anatomy.

The cadaver crypt was specially designed for EHS when the building was constructed to provide superior ventilation while students are working. (see picture)

Faculty research laboratories

Our faculty research labs were built to facilitate and encourage our faculty to pursue scientific research.  Research done in these labs has led to several publications in high-quality, peer-reviewed scientific journals.  Students in our department have the opportunity to join the research team of one of our faculty and gain a solid research experience while attending George Fox.
