UNM is doing some very cool nanotech stuff. Great find, Masshole!

Is that the new Biology Building UNM can't afford to finish because the Higher Ed bond issue was voted down?  Couldn't they have used some of the several million dollars that the UNM regents recently voted to use for the Baseball field?

Michelle, Krista's right, the Science and Math learning center was underway before the last GO bond vote and was funded by revenue bonds, the 2006 GO Bond and Bank of America donated some cash for the 3-D visualization lab. The Biology building is just being completed on the exterior until other means of funding it are available. We did a story on the opening back in March. http://news.unm.edu/2011/03/science-and-math-learning-center-opens/

 

Jeff, I can check into that for you. I think the Board of Regents use money from a lot of different sources to fund various projects (like the revenue bonds that helped with the Science and Math building) but I'll see what I can find out.
