2013 Molloy College Science Summer Camp
The Biology, Chemistry and Environmental Studies Department at Molloy College has two advanced research laboratories which support multiple methodologies including: recombinant DNA technology, cell hybridization, electrophoresis, influorescence microscopy and immunochemistry. A common instrumentation room services both Chemistry and Earth and Environmental Studies for infrared spectrophotometry, ICP spectrophotometry, gas chromatography and other high tech data analyses. One large combination teaching laboratory and lecture room accommodates the needs of General Physics and Earth Science. An attached microscopy room and darkroom are available for general use.

*The Center for Estuarine, Environmental and Coastal Oceans Monitoring (CEECOM) is located right in the backyard of the Great South Bay, providing a unique opportunity for coastal research. The 10,000 square foot Center includes a salt water well, which is essential to the research being conducted. Research is designed to prepare the earth, environmental and marine scientist to manage the concerns unique to coastal and nearshore ocean ecosystems.
Students conducting research at the Center will be monitoring Fire Island's seashore and handling a host of environmental issues that are at the forefront of Long Island concerns including hurricane protection, drinking water contamination, air pollution and health, urban sprawl and transportation issues, to name a few top priority issues.
