New freshman course integrates biology, physics, chemistry and computer science
A room-sized sculpture by architect Frank Gehry
Princeton NJ -- A room-sized sculpture by architect Frank Gehry provides a unique setting for classes within Princeton’s Icahn Laboratory, home of the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics.
The sculpture, which consists of a wood frame sheathed in metal, sits in the atrium of the lab and was a gift of alumnus Peter Lewis. Here, Daniel Marlow, professor and chair of physics, teaches an evening review session for a new freshman course that integrates biology, physics, chemistry and computer science into a single curriculum.
