College of Pharmacy gets new home

The biology department and College of Pharmacy at the University of Minnesota Duluth have found a new home. Both are now housed in UMD's 38-year-old Life Science Building, which underwent a $15.2 million renovation over the past 20 months. University officials describe the Paddock Laboratories Education Center, which opened its doors Sept. 7, as a state-of-the-art facility designed for science education and research. The center features five classrooms and two large laboratories for faculty laboratory research and student professional practice experience. The center also contains a study space, computer laboratories, and a student lounge. "We are thrilled with the new space," said Marilyn Speedie, University of Minnesota dean of pharmacy. The renovation project was funded in part by donations from Bruce Paddock, a Duluth native and 1970 alumnus of the college.
