Transformative Research Centers

Two new research centers located in the Science Initiative building — the Center for Advanced Scientific Instrumentation and the Center for Integrative Biological Research — form an innovation nexus to stimulate external funding and research productivity and to train the next generation of Wyoming science scholars, teachers, and researchers. Equipped with strategically placed collaboration spaces, the centers are housed in this single science complex, serving to develop interdisciplinary research activities involving chemists, physicists, astronomers, and biologists. Collaborative research activities across disciplines in the core sciences will transform the way UW investigates and teaches science.



The Center for Advanced Scientific Instrumentation

Will co-locate UW’s elite imaging scientists, their student teams, and unique instrumentation in a state-of-the-art staffed laboratory, allowing them to achieve unprecedented sensitivities and efficiencies in probing the fundamental interactions among atoms, molecules, and cells that underlie all next-generation technologies. The center will rank among the world’s best, attracting faculty and students from across the globe as it spotlights Wyoming’s commitment to the sciences that serve state and national needs.


The Center for Integrative Biological Research

Will bring together UW’s world-recognized biologists into a single collaborative space to foster innovation and convergent research activities addressing some of Wyoming’s most pressing environmental and health-related challenges. The center will be organized around state-of-the-art plant growth and laboratory animal research facilities specially designed for studies using model and transgenic organisms with appropriate safeguards. The facility will include modern research laboratories and collaboration spaces for faculty-led research teams conducting new and convergent studies in strategic areas of life sciences.
