symbolic of the beginning of a new era for biomedical research excellence at The University
of Montana.

Designed almost exclusively by scientists , this facility reflects the modern interdisciplinary
approach to biomedical research so strongly supported by the National Institutes of Health.
It is this approach that guides UM researchers in the investigation of medical problems
ranging from Alzheimer’s disease, cancer and stroke to lung disease, environmental impacts

                                                                                                  College of HealtH Professions and BiomediCal sCienCes
on health, health disparities, deafness and other disorders.

Each of the main research floors has three
large interconnected laboratories that allow
scientists from various disciplines to work on
related research problems. Specialized rooms
are in place for core instrumentation such
as cell culture, imaging, biospectroscopy,
DNA microarray, mass spectroscopy and
computational modeling. Each floor has
support areas for research conferencing
and student support. The floor plan also
includes offices for public outreach and a
science discovery area to be made available
