Center for Biotechnology and Life Science Grand Opening

On January 26, 2009, the University of Rhode Island officially opened the doors to the Center for Biotechnology and Life Sciences, the largest classroom and research building project in its history.

The 140,000 square-foot facility houses modern teaching laboratories, cutting edge research laboratories, high-tech facilities for DNA sequencing and analysis, faculty offices, a 100-seat classroom, and a two-story, 300-seat auditorium, all to meet the needs of URI’s growing environmental biotechnology, life and health sciences programs.
