The faculty of the Biology graduate program are housed primarily in 3 buildings: Farquharson, Lumbers and the new Life Sciences Building (LSB). LSB houses 14 faculty members together with their research teams and graduate students. This building provides leading edge technologies for advanced biological research in a stunning open concept laboratory space spread over two research floors. The building has specialized state-of-the-art facilities for cellular imaging, nuclear magnetic resonance, mass spectrometry, flow cytometry, and has shared resources and equipment for cell culture and radioisotope use. The open space creates a community among its occupants, encourages interaction and increases scientific collaboration.
