Rice University – Optics Lab
Build out of shell space for new faculty recruit in Space Science and Technology Building. The interdisciplinary research group is focused on the development and application of 3D single-molecule tracking and super-resolution imaging throughout mammalian cells. The goal of this research is to improve understanding of cellular function and pathogenesis to answer biophysical and biomedical questions related to aging and cancer.
The project includes an Optics lab with three cubicles requiring individual control, a cell culture lab and supporting wet lab space. The strict humidity control required an independent air handling system to be added to the existing systems.
