Community Lab Space for Your Group
In the heart of Sanford Research, you’ll find a state-of-the-art research lab that provides research space and equipment for the community.
Public and private groups are welcome to use the space for:
- Hands-on activities facilitated by the Sanford PROMISE team
- Research activities and projects you develop under PROMISE scientists’ supervision
We also host events including a family science festival and a community lecture series.
Attend the PROMISE Community Lecture Series
Are you interested in science? Have you ever wondered about the scientific research being performed in your own community? The PROMISE Community Lecture Series provides a unique opportunity for science-minded individuals within our community to learn about local research projects from the scientists themselves. Lectures are provided by leading academic and industry scientists within the region.
Thank you for your participation in the 2020-2021 PROMISE Community Lecture Series. This series will resume in the 2021-2022 academic year. Please check back in August for dates, times and topics.
