About the Translational Science and Engineering Facility (TSEF)
The Resnick Sustainability Center (RSC) building, scheduled to open in the Fall of 2024, will serve as a hub for sustainability research and interdisciplinary collaboration. In addition to hosting undergraduate state-of-the-art teaching laboratories, interactive-learning classrooms, and meeting spaces, the building will house several resource centers – unique facilities available for campus researchers across all academic divisions. These facilities include the Solar Science and Catalysis Center (SSCC), the Remote Sensing Center (RSC), the Ecology and Biosphere Engineering Facility (EBEF), and the Translational Science and Engineering Facility (TSEF).
TSEF will provide space to researchers for advancing early-stage sustainability technologies towards proof-of-concept demonstrations that may lead to further development as commercial products or for adoption by government or other entities to further sustainability objectives.
The TSEF space includes a high bay space, a maker workroom space, and several laboratories that can host a variety of different types of projects simultaneously. The high bay space (31'-6" x 41'-6") is equipped with a monorail crane with access to the building loading dock. The high bay is also equipped with an 8-foot fume hood, adjustable and movable benches, and storage units. The low bay space (31'-6" x 41'-6") is equipped with movable and adjustable benches and provides direct access to the support laboratories, which have fume hoods, sinks, benchtops, and storage spaces. The maker space can accommodate manual, semi-automated, and automated fabrication bench-top equipment and tools.
Translational Science and Engineering Facility (TSEF) Survey
Knowing that there are substantial engineering facilities and workshops on campus already, we are seeking your suggestions about equipment, engineering tools, expertise, and software that are not readily available on campus, but that could be broadly empowering in support of translational efforts.
We appreciate you taking the time to fill out this brief questionnaire. If needed/requested, we will happily follow up for further discussion.
