The SL90 Conservation Project of Fr. Bogadek’s Research Works
The project aims to:
- bring to life the Research Works that Fr. Bogadek and students have done over the past 50 years;
- restore the data of the Research Works for display and educational use; and
- enable the display of the Research Works at the St. Louis Biology Laboratory in a modernized environment.
To achieve the aims above, work is underway to restore and revitalize old specimens, produce 3D-scans of those specimens for online viewing, digitize other data to prevent loss of information, refurbish the St. Louis Biology Laboratory, and interview Fr. Bogadek for the production of a detailed account of his Research Works which spanned decades. Fr. Bogadek is acting as the principal consultant of the project.
