Transcript

  • 1. Plant Science Expansion
  • 2. Anew building to accommodate growth of federally funded research in plant sciences.
  • 3. Provide increased plant growth facilities
  • 4. Provide increased use of computation in plant science research
  • 5. Allow MSU to recruitand retain the world’s best plant scientists to solve complex problems relatedto energy, food and health.
  • 6. Located at the corner of Bogue St. and Wilson Rd.
  • 7. It will connect to the
    Plant Biology
    Building
    and
    Plant and Soil Science Building.
  • 8. A research home for faculty in…
    Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, DOE Plant Research Lab,Forestry, Horticulture, Plant Biology, Plant Pathology, andCrop & Soil Sciences.
  • 9. This building will support faculty conducting the latest plant science research at MSU.
  • 10. Research funding for plant science in the College of Natural Science alone has doubled to $12M/yr in the last 5 years.
  • 11. This includes projects involving the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center ($50M), DOE Plant Research Lab ($4.5 M), NIH Grand Opportunity Grant for medicinal plants ($2.8M), and other NSF, NIH and DOE grants.
  • 12. The building will have four floors and 40,000 square feet.
  • 13. Three floors will be research laboratories with space for 15 research groups and…
  • 14. 144 graduate students,
    post-docs, technicians
    and undergraduates
  • 15. The open lab design will maximize interaction, collaboration, and
    space utilization.
  • 16. The basement provides MSU scientists a 30% increase in plant growth chambers.
  • 17. Connections to the other buildings allows transportation of plants between growth chambers, labs and green houses without exposure to weather, disease, and insects.
  • 18. The first floor provides an entrance to the horticulture gardens.
  • 19. The first floor features a 225-seat lecture hall and interaction space.
  • 20. Budget: $43MConstruction: May 2010 - December 2011
  • 21. Architect/Engineers: SmithGroup, Detroit, Mich.Construction Managers: The Christman Company, Lansing, Mich.
