Laboratory and Mouse Housing Space

  • We have roughly 1100 sq,ft. of laboratory space in the Biotechnology Building and a separate ~200 sq.ft. sterile tissue culture room, microscope room, and 150 sq.ft. of office space. We also have access to a common equipment room to store our six -80C freezers, We have one entire mouse room in the Weill Barrier Mouse Facility (a connected building), with a capacity of four mouse racks (400 cages). Moreover, the facility offers us access to a second room, which is used for overflow and for surgery.
