We’re excited to have completed the Bioinformatics Lab at Langara College. This brand new molecular lab has a built-in tissue culture lab and some other great features.
The main lab has all the essentials for an academic science lab geared towards teaching upper-level biology. Proscenium paired a clean contemporary design with the necessary specialized building services such as access to water, compressed air, fume hoods, filters and methods of disposing chemicals.
The facility is unique because it also has built-in infrastructure for hosting industry professionals for extended periods on research projects. A hallway with faculty offices also includes two hotel-ing stations for visiting scientists.
The project also allows space for evolving technologies. A general-purpose computer lab features five Virtual Reality stations that allow users to build 3D models of enzymes, proteins and other molecular structures as a tool for teaching and research.
We are excited for Langara to reopen and for this lab to be full of students!
