The Molecular Biology Institute was been built on a foundation of philanthropy. Much of what we have accomplished over the past 50 years has been made possible by supporters who believe in our mission. Here are some new initiatives we are working on and we welcome your feedback and involvement!
MBI Conference Facility- the next 50 years.
The Molecular Biology Institute is committed to facilitating collaborations and accelerating research progress across Departmental lines. We do this by bringing our members together frequently to hear scientific presentations and to share research updates and technological advances. Centrally located on South Campus, the conference room in Boyer Hall has served as an excellent space for this purpose for many years. It is used extensively by the MBI and can cater to a range of events, from large seminars and receptions to small lab meetings.
It is now time to reimagine the conference room space for the 21st century. We would like to fully equip the room to support both presentations and video conferencing, in addition to improving the overall quality of the audiovisuals. We would also like to expand the space to include the adjacent patio where we can host pre- and post-talk receptions and other events that are becoming increasingly important to forge relationships and promote candid conversations among researchers. To realize this vision, we are looking for philanthropic partners who would like to help us transform this space and provide a significant resource to our scientist and our students. There are also opportunities to name the room, recognizing major contributions to its renovation. We welcome the opportunity to show you our plans in more detail!
