I-CARES open house Feb. 27

The International Center for Advanced Renewable Energy and Sustainability (I-CARES) will hold an open house at 4 p.m. Friday, Feb. 27, in the Wilson Hall Third Floor Atrium.

Chancellor Mark Wrighton will join I-CARES director Himadri B. Pakrasi, Ph.D., the George William and Irene Koechig Freiberg Professor of Biology in Arts & Sciences and professor of energy in the School of Engineering & Applied Science, and other members of the I-CARES community in celebrating the opening accomplishments of the center.

I-CARES was formed in 2007 to encourage and coordinate collaborative research in the areas of renewable energy and sustainability — including biofuels, carbon dioxide mitigation and coal-related issues. WUSTL is making a major commitment to I-CARES research.

Refreshments will be served.
