Arizona State University has implemented a new academic research model focused on collaboration across disciplines to encourage dynamic and synergetic intellectual pursuits that will have a very real impact on science. The Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Building 1 is the first of multiple phases of research infrastructure centrally located on the main campus. This state-of-the-art laboratory building is an expansion of the College of Life Sciences and the College of Engineering. It houses life sciences and bioengineering faculty research, supported by analytical and computational laboratories.
The laboratories have been designed generically to provide the flexibility to adapt to a variety of research programs over time. Shared support areas, such as environmental rooms, procedure rooms, and equipment rooms are outfitted on each laboratory floor. Core lab, NMR, and vivarium facilities have been designed to support research and augment future phases of the campus research infrastructure.
