The new facility is an exciting expansion for the teaching and research capabilities of the College of Agriculture, Forestry and Life Sciences. Here, some of the country’s brightest minds will come together to share the latest technology and the most up-to-date laboratory space. The 100,000-square-foot facility is targeted to achieve LEED gold status.
Researchers housed in the facility represent the disciplines of microbiology, biochemistry, food safety and genetics — the basics of human existence. The new Life Sciences facility encourages collaboration, offers state-of-the-art technology and provides the tools needed for this generation’s greatest minds to excel.
