New Genome Sciences Building provides new home for cancer genomics research

Each of the upper three floors of the Genome Sciences Building is organized around three large wet labs that receive ample natural light through floor-to-ceiling windows.

The facility will provide an interdisciplinary home for genomics research across the disciplines, with many faculty members working on cancer research for the UNC Lineberger.  The building is equipped to provide researchers with the tools to examine the genome of any living organism.

“This building will instantly serve the college, and it will also continue to attract some of the brightest minds in genomics research, who will see our mission and want to join it. The field moves so fast, and this building provides the facilities and the space for Carolina to stay on top,” said Jason Lieb, director of the Carolina Center for Genome Science and UNC Lineberger member.
