Cell and Molecular Biology and Biochemistry (CMBB) Research Suite

This lab is an interdisciplinary space, primarily shared by the chemistry and biology departments.  The main lab is 4200 square feet in size and contains 14 large lab benches.  Seven are assigned to the 14 faculty who share the space (each faculty member gets one side of a bench).  The remaining bench space is shared or used by the larger research groups who need extra space at any given time.  There are several additional smaller labs, totaling about 2700 square feet, used for (A) Microscopy, (B) Reagent Preparation, (C) Equipment, Refrigerators, and Freezers, (D) Biological Safety Cabinets, (E) Cell Culture, (F) Autoclaves.  In addition, there is a separate 1100 square-foot area with 16 student carrels and a conference room.

Looking down the main aisle through the main room of the CMBB lab. This shows Dr. Guthrie's assigned lab bench.  Note the student desk area on the far side of the divider at the end of the bench.  Each bench has one desk area.
