In December, Virginia Tech broke ground for the first building in the new Biosciences Precinct at the corner of Duck Pond Drive and Washington Street. The 93,860-square-foot building will incorporate laboratory and support facilities, focusing on a wide range of microbiological and biochemical research. Researchers will benefit from the expanded space, which will house research programs on food safety, food packaging and processing, environmental quality analysis, bioenergy and biomaterials, systems biology, and nanotechnology, among other areas.
