December 16, 2020

Fume hood exhaust fans will be temporarily unavailable throughout the Irving Cancer Research Center on Monday, Dec. 21, from 12 p.m. until approximately 5 p.m. for testing purposes.

During this time, laboratory users are instructed to avoid using fume hoods and tightly seal all containers within the fume hood or remove and safely store containers elsewhere in the lab. Once service has been restored, Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) will be on site beginning Tuesday, December 22 at 8 a.m.to spot check fume hood exhaust flow.

We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your cooperation as we work to improve our facilities. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact John Kakleas, senior project engineer at jk3796@cumc.columbia.edu.
