This new laboratory facility is designed for the purpose of developing new scientific research. The primary functional goals for the facility are to have a building that supports scientific research activities and engages students via training and education. The building is a flexible laboratory, teaching and faculty office environment.
The teaching space includes up to four teaching laboratories, including lab support for upper level undergraduate and graduate level classes. Additional areas also include space for IT support, research activity reception and display area(s). The building accommodates approximately 23 principal investigators and their students, along with technical and service support staff. The common thread of research emphasis will be the fundamental study of animal systems within such fields as, but not limited to, biochemistry, microbiology, immunology, endocrinology and proteomics.
Integral with the building design and many site improvements, the Life Science Building is a sustainable building that is LEED® certified at a Gold level.
