Welcome to nUBC!
OPENING EVENT – December 16, 2013

The nUBC facility is the most recent addition to PCIGR.  The new laboratories and instruments represent an investment of ~$7.5 million and have allowed significant expansion and improvement of PCIGR’s analytical capacity.

This major project was approved for funding from the Canada Foundation for Innovation (Leading Edge Fund) and the BC Government (Knowledge Development Fund) in 2009, and by 2010, plans and designs were well underway.  Construction of the new 2200 sq. ft. clean laboratories on the ground floor of EOAS Main took place between January and September 2011.  By October 2014, all 6 of the new instruments acquired through this project were installed in this state-of-the-art facility.
