Molette Biology Laboratory for Environmental and Climate Change Studies

Members of the Molette Lab - 2012

William Page Molette, Electrical Engineering ’27, was a brilliant scientist who had a successful career with the General Electric Corporation. He and his wife, Ruth, as a result of his interest in scientific research, bequeathed their entire estate to Auburn University. Per William Molette’s wishes, the estate was designated for non-endowed scientific research in Auburn University's College of Sciences and Mathematics (COSAM).

A portion of the $2.7 million estate gift was dedicated by COSAM to the establishment of the Molette Biology Laboratory for Environmental and Climate Change Studies. This dedicated lab space enables COSAM students and faculty to continue to respond to natural disasters, which are more likely due to ongoing climate change. The Molette Lab also positions COSAM as a leader in global climate change research and the ensuing effects on our environment.
