    Lab safety
    Peter Ashbrook, the director of the UI's Division of Research Safety, said recent high-profile laboratory accidents at national research institutions have spurred a renewed effort to improve campus lab safety procedures. At the UI, lab safety is the purview of a "principal investigator" charged with ensuring best practices and procedures are being followed. The Urbana campus has an estimated 800 to 3,000 labs, many of them contained within multi-station suites.
