The Life Sciences Building (LSB) project at Clemson University is a new laboratory facility designed for collaborative, interdisciplinary research and education for the College of Agriculture, Forestry and Life Sciences.

The facility has 25 flexible laboratories organized by research clusters that focus on emerging pathogens, cancer prevention and cure, microbiology and food safety. An advanced imaging suite with state-of-the-art Leica microscopy equipment will be used by more than 60 scientists for research and will be available to private corporations.

Three microbiology teaching laboratories will expose students to the latest research methods in an environment that will propel their imaginations and creativity. These labs will serve upper level undergraduate and graduate level classes.

In developing the LSB project, a master plan for this area of campus was created, making the LSB building the first phase of a new future life science research quad. The Life Sciences Building is a sustainable building designed to meet or exceed LEED® Gold certification.
