In the Biological Sciences Program, CMU-Q provides specialized laboratory spaces where students can learn, investigate and conduct research.
Biology lab –A state-of-the art lab with equipment for cellular, biochemical, and molecular biology research and teaching. In addition to standard laboratory equipment, the lab has equipment for tissue culture, real-time quantitative PCR, next generation DNA sequencing (IonS5), GenomeLab GeXP system, HPLC, and a flow cytometer for cellular analysis. There are two separate labs that are dedicated to faculty and student research, which include several working stations for qPCR, bacterial culture, gel electrophoresis, microscopy, sequencing, and a Biosafety Level 2 tissue culture area.
Chemistry lab –A teaching lab that is equipped with the instrumentation for an upper level quantitative chemistry laboratory (HPLC, ICP-AES, ion chromatography). In addition, there is a separate lab that is dedicated to chemistry faculty and student research.
