As the newest center for pioneering research on the UIUC campus, the Institute for Genomic Biology is dedicated to transformative research with program areas in systems biology, cellular and metabolic engineering, astrobiology, and genome technology. The IGB is housed in a $75 million, 186,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility. The building was dedicated in March 2007.
The building design facilitates collaboration between researchers and provides space to advance technology transfer, education, and engagement with partners in genomic biology. The Institute is organized into discrete themes, of which several laboratories exploring similar broad concepts are members. The Stubbs Lab is a member of the Gene Networks in Neural & Developmental Plasticity (GNDP) theme. Dr. Lisa Stubbs is the chair of this theme.
