Faculty, staff, and students in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering are thrilled to be moving into state-of-the-art lab and office space in the Jennie Smoly Caruthers Biotechnology Building this spring.
“This collaborative environment will allow us to continue supporting cutting-edge research and teaching that will help us recruit the best students and faculty, and maintain our status as a top chemical and biological engineering program,” says department chair Chris Bowman.
CU’s Biofrontiers Institute and the Division of Biochemistry will share the 336,000-square-foot building, which was recently completed on CU-Boulder’s East Campus.
Designed to promote collaboration among researchers from a variety of disciplines, the building has been made possible by private support Private support helps CU excel in biotechnology —roughly $52 million to date—combined with university and public funds.
The college is especially grateful to support provided by the Bradley, Broida, and Prager families, along with Phillips 66 (formerly ConocoPhillips) and Chevron, and the Engineering Advisory Council, all of which have provided significant gifts for the building.
Fundraising will continue as long as needed to complete the project. For more information on supporting biotechnology at CU-Boulder, contact the Engineering Development Office at 303-492-7899.
