BIO5 scientists are at the forefront of interdisciplinary, collaborative research resulting in breakthroughs in biology and technology that translate into a better quality of life for us all.
Interaction and flexibility were two key concepts in the design of the spectacular BIO5 facility in the 177,000 square foot Thomas W. Keating Bioresearch Building. Open labs, moveable equipment, and plenty of indoor/outdoor meeting spaces encourage collaboration among the 350+ faculty, research staff, and students who come together here from all over the University of Arizona.
The Keating building’s unique functional features also include inspiring design elements in the splashes of color, floor to ceiling windows, open concepts within the desk areas and between the floors, and green initiatives that support our concern for preserving the environment.
The inspiration and energy of the BIO5 art collection speaks to the possibility of discovery, in much the same way the beautiful Keating building does for the scientists who work in it. The art on the walls of BIO5's facility is the work of nationally and internationally acclaimed artists, chosen for inclusion in the collection because of their vision and their outstanding bodies of work.
