IBS Center for NanoMedicine

IBS Hall

  • “Center Without Barrier” The philosophy of the IBS Hall is to promote interdisciplinary research in a variety of scientific disciplines. Elimination of physical barriers and leading to collaboration and creative research are key idea. Our lab spaces are intentionally modeled on a residential open-concept design. Open-concept designs remove barriers that usually separate distinct areas of a residence, creating one unified space.

  • Traditional designs for research facilities separate research groups into different laboratory spaces and offices based on researcher specialization. The physical separation of researchers can hinder collaboration and cross-disciplinary work. The IBS Hall is mindfully designed to remove these physical barriers. By removing walls and emptying hallways, our laboratory zones are open spaces where our research teams have space to set up their own focused experiments and to pursue cross-project collaborations.

  • Our IBS Hall design enables intellectual discussion, exploration, and collaboration. Our building incorporates more casual group areas into our design: Creative Stairways, Commons, and Lounges. These spaces organically link the more specialized areas on each floor. The creative spaces provide resting areas for researchers and remove barriers to free-flowing discussion and brainstorming. Finally, the facade of the building itself continues the theme of open-space Its glass windows enable warm natural light to embrace the building during the day and grants magnificent city-views at night.

  • Core facilities for interdisciplinary research of nanomedicine Our center has established facilities and instrumentations from nanomaterials synthesis and characterization to micro/nano-fab facilities for device fabrication, and various biomedical applications.
    • 1) Materials Core: Instrumentations for chemical synthesis, purification, and characterizations TEM, SEM, XRD, VSM, NMR, HPLC, GCMS, etc.
    • 2) Biomedical Core: Instrumentations for cell and animal works, optical microscopes, and purification Animal lab, confocal microscope, TIRF, FACS, RT-PCR, X-CLARITY, Tissue slicer, Bio 3D printer, MRI, critical point dryer, patch clamp, pipette puller, FPLC, etc.
    • 3) Fabrication Core: Clean room (ISO-1000) and instrumentations for micro/nano-fab and microfluidics Clean room, photolithography, electron-beam lithography, sputter, evaporator, RIE, wet station, 3D printer, laser cutter, etc.
