In accordance with the University’s policy on research activity  the Center for Environmental Sciences and Engineering (CESE) has begun to ramp down, and all laboratory activities will be shut down by the close of business on 3/23/2020.  This shut down is effective until April 22nd, but may be extended longer depending on the status of the pandemic. The following points are effective immediately:

·  New samples are not being accepted for processing by the CESE. 

·  Sample pick up from UConn Health will be suspended until further notice. 

·  Processing of in-house samples have been put on hold until further direction from the University; however, all samples are being stored appropriately to minimize impacts that could result from this delay in analysis.  


It is important to note that our laboratory staff and management are still working remotely – and are available to schedule a teleconference/WebEx with questions on existing projects or to plan future experiments.

If there are any laboratory-specific questions please reach out to the appropriate lab manager,
