A new Clinical Sciences Research Laboratory designed to enhance collaborations across departments has opened at the UF College of Veterinary Medicine.

The $600,000 laboratory took approximately nine months to build and accommodates researchers focused on both small and large animal research.

“The goals were to renovate old 1970s labs into a better quality space, to foster more collaboration and to better utilize the biological scientists on our staff,” said John Haven, director of medical/health administration for the college.

Equipment housed in the new BSL2-level lab includes two new biological safety cabinets, a fume hood, centrifuges, microscopes, refrigerators and freezers, and four incubators, said Brandy Winter, senior biological scientist and lab manager.

Ten clinical researchers are currently collaborating on various projects ranging from gene therapy involving cell culture, to PCR, vaccinations and reproduction, Winter said.
