SDSM&T Unveils New Biochemistry Lab, Thanks to 3M’s $200K Gift
Date:9/25/2013

Rapid City, S.D. (PRWEB) September 25, 2013

The South Dakota School of Mines & Technology Department of Chemistry & Applied Biological Sciences unveiled its new 3M Biochemistry Laboratory at a dedication today.

The new lab comes as a result of a $200,000 gift from 3M. The lab has allowed for a new two-semester biochemistry course with complementary lab experiences and new lab equipment to provide training to students. Received during the SDSM&T Foundation’s successful $50 million Building the Dream fundraising campaign, the gift is the result of continuous, active involvement of Mines alumni within the company, as well as the direct result of collaboration between the university, the SDSM&T Foundation and leadership within 3M.

“The generous gift from the 3M Company has allowed the Department of Chemistry & Applied Biological Sciences to outfit a modern laboratory for teaching biochemistry. This will increase the quality of education to a diverse student population at SDSM&T,” said Richard Sinden, Ph.D., head and professor in the Department of Chemistry & Applied Biological Sciences. “The 3M Biochemistry Laboratory will provide hands-on research opportunities in biochemistry, as well as in genetics and molecular biology. This facility will develop the technological and innovation skills needed for graduate study or for entering the workforce.”

SDSM&T is one of the top providers of engineering talent to 3M, a global innovation company based in St. Paul, Minn., that has improved daily life for hundreds of millions of people all over the world. The public company employs 88,000 people in more than 70 countries.

Today, 3M employs around 70 School of Mines graduates in a wide variety of positions, from supervisors to managers to engineers – three of which joined the company this past spring.

“CABS [Chemistry and Applied Biological Sciences] and SDSM&T look forward to a continued relationship with the 3M Company. Technology evolves rapidly. Intellect, creativity and innovation drive technological evolution. Continued partnership with the 3M Company through support for education and research will ensure that Mines produces the innovative students who can make an impact in today’s marketplace, for example, by driving 3M’s goal of innovative technology for a changing world,” Sinden added.

In pledging the $200,000, 3M cites a relationship with the university dating back many years and a “long history of investing in programs to help attract and retain students” whose contributions as alumni are “important to 3M’s success.”

3M representatives were on campus Monday for the announcement, which was made in the new 3M Biochemistry Laboratory of the new Chemical and Biological Engineering/Chemistry Building.
