Rendering of the CIBR Research Labs

Center for Integrative Biological Research (CIBR)

  1. Spread across all floors of the SI Building, CIBR will bring together UW’s world-recognized biologists within shared laboratories and collaborative spaces to foster innovation and convergent research activities addressing some of Wyoming’s most pressing environmental and health-related challenges. CIBR will support scientific explorations that range spatial scales from molecules to cells, to organisms, to ecosystems, and to earth systems and that span temporal scales from seconds to thousands of years.  Lab and field experiments will be paralleled by cutting-edge modeling that also spans this broad range of spatial and temporal scales to better understand current systems and model future states.


  1. CIBR’s design is one with open laboratory and informal spaces which offer shared resources and natural collision spaces to support current cross-scale collaborations and foster new and innovative research endeavors. The innovative design, in part, will help drive increased research success through external granting, publications, and research opportunities for students.


  1. CIBR will house world-class research support facilities to enable cutting-edge research for CIBR faculty as well as all other STEM faculty from across campus.  Rooftop greenhouses and walk-in growth chambers will provide highly controlled growth conditions, enabling research opportunities not yet realized at UW.  The Model Organism Research Facility (MORF) will provide modern care and procedure facilities for work with small mammals and amphibians.
