culture_introductionScientists at the Institute work in collaboration to solve challenging chemical problems and invent sustainable technologies and processes. Our goal is to provide our scientists with an environment that both allows development and expansion of expertise, and enables scientific and professional growth through interaction with a diverse and multi-disciplinary team. With state-of-the-art analytical instrumentation generally only found in large academic institutions and over 20,000 square feet of laboratory space, our facilities give our scientists the latitude and resources to conduct truly innovative research.

Our scientists’ passion, creativity, and innovation are essential to achieving the mission of the Warner Babcock Institute. To foster these qualities, the Institute aims to create an atmosphere for our employees that balances intellectual stimulation and hard work with relaxation and convenience: in addition to our modern laboratory facilities, our newly renovated building houses a workout room, a yoga studio, a lounge with a ping-pong table and a pool table, and a full kitchen.
