A Big Lab for Small Science

Abstract:
Construction was finally completed earlier this month on the colossal Oxford Street building that houses the science of the very small. By attracting accomplished scientists like Yacoby and fostering collaboration between the sciences, administrators hope that LISE will bring Harvard to the forefront of nanotechnology research.

But scientific preeminence does not come cheaply, and with its $155 million price tag, LISE is no exception. In its planning stages, the project drew criticism for contributing to a projected budget deficit in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS), and the University has still not secured a primary donor to help pay for the building.
