The Robert C. Byrd Biotechnology Science Center (BBSC) is a $40-million-dollar, 20,000-square-foot facility that houses the Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program and brings together faculty, staff, and students from our program, the College of Science, and the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine. The facility was largely funded by a grant of over $35 million from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Most students in the Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program research on the third and fourth floors of the building, which include cancer research facilities, the Flow Cytometry Core Facility, the Genomics Core Facility, and equipment rooms and offices for graduate students and faculty.
The first floor contains two high-tech, multimedia auditoriums, teaching laboratories for
classes, lecture rooms, the animals quarters of the Animal Resource Core Facility, and the microscopy and imaging facilities of the Molecular and Biological Imaging Center. Seminar rooms for small group meetings and faculty and student offices are also located on the second floor.
The BBSC is located on Third Avenue across from Science Building.
