Temple Ambler Now a Field Station
The Temple Ambler Field Station will be “an important resource for essential research taking place throughout the University,” said Dr. Michele Masucci, Vice President for Research at Temple, who announced that a field station would be formally established at Temple Ambler at the University’s inaugural President’s Innovation Awards Gala earlier this year.
“It will be the focal point for cross-disciplinary, cutting-edge scientific research; hands-on teaching and learning; and important outreach programs. The Field Station will distinguish Temple University from other institutions by offering a rich and diverse University resource to our faculty and their collaborators,” she said. “It will greatly enhance the educational experience of our students by preparing graduates for further study, for scientific careers, and to be informed citizens.”
Field Station initiatives will be guided by its new director, Dr. Amy Freestone, an Associate Professor in Temple’s Department of Biology in the College of Science and Technology.
