UCSD BIOLOGICAL AND PHYSICAL SCIENCES BUILDING

The new, seven-story building will support research and teaching in the biological and physical sciences, with programs focusing on human health and the environment housed within a flexible laboratory building that promotes science on display. The program consists of quantitative biology and neurobiology laboratories; the physical sciences will contain synthetic, organic and physical chemistry labs. Lower floors have biology teaching class labs, chemistry teaching labs, learning studios and classrooms, a nationally recognized nuclear magnetic resonance core facility, a 175-seat auditorium dedicated to research symposia, and post-doctorate and faculty offices. It anticipates LEED Silver certification.
