Science Initiative

The University of Wyoming Science Initiative building will continue a transformation on campus within the core sciences and will bring together the Center for Advanced Scientific Imaging (CASI), core facilities within the Center for Integrative Biological Research (CIBR) and Active Learning Classrooms (ALC) into an interdisciplinary modern facility for faculty and students.

The CASI will consist of state-of-the-art imaging rooms for atomic force microscopes, transition electron microscopes and X-ray photoelectron spectrometer, which are essential to support their nanomolecular materials research.

The CIBR will include shared research labs, BSL2 labs, core support spaces and offices for faculty, research staff, and graduate students from the department of Botany and Molecular Biology, Ecosystem Science, Zoology and Physiology precisely controlled environments for animal rearing and plant growth, and modern greenhouses.

The ALC spaces will be a transformative feature for this building and campus with classrooms for core science courses in biology, chemistry, and physics. Students will be engaged in a variety of learning opportunities which are facilitated by the instructor that include short interactive lectures, small group discussions, problem sets, case studies and web-based learning opportunities.
