The Marian E. Koshland Integrated Natural Sciences Center (KINSC) is a platform for scholarly and curricular activities among faculty and students sharing a passion for scientific inquiry across a diverse and interdisciplinary range of topics. The KINSC catalyzes and facilitates programming that maintains Haverford College's position as a leading institution of excellence in the sciences.
The KINSC Summer Scholars program provides financial support for students who are able to secure unpaid on-campus or off-campus laboratory research positions or public policy internships that have a significant natural science component.
Suzanne Amador Kane (Haverford Physics) and her student research team used bird-mounted cameras to examine how falcons pursue their prey. Since their research was published in The Journal of Experimental Biology, the study has been attracting international media attention and a YouTube video of footage from a "falconcam" has gone viral.
The website excerpted a chapter from Chatterjee’s The Aesthetic Brain: How We Evolved to Desire Beauty and Enjoy Art under the title, “Neuroscience explains why sex feels good.”
KINSC supports student travel to professional meetings and workshops as part of a faculty-supported project or student-initiated academic experience in the sciences.
The KINSC is a nexus for interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary growth at Haverford and supports curricular and faculty development that promote synergies between existing Departments and cooperation with the Hurford Humanities Center (HHC) and the Center for Peace and Global Citizenship (CPGC).
