As of October 26, 2020, the state-of-the-art Bioscience 3 building is open for business! The Department of Bioengineering is thrilled to be expanding innovation and research space into the newest building of the Fitzsimons Innovation Community at the CU Anschutz Medical Campus.
The CU School of Medicine’s Center for Bioengineering (CFB) has gained 16,776 square feet of space in Bioscience 3 to house the operations of a number of CFB faculty. The mission of the center is to support and enhance healthcare technology innovation through cross-disciplinary collaborations between engineering and health sciences on the CU Anschutz Medical Campus. With the new facilities in Bioscience 3, the CFB will be able to support innovators in industry and academia with a wide variety of services for medical technology innovation, research, design, and prototyping. The center has substantial technical equipment that will be made available to members. These include polymer and metal 3D printers, advanced microscopes including an Atomic Force Microscope, dynamic materials testers, 3D bioprinters, a micro-fabrication clean room, diagnostic and test equipment, biosensors, surgical simulation systems, and computational clusters for biomedical simulations.
The following bioengineering faculty are moving their research operations into Bioscience 3 as well:
Cathy Bodine – Center for Inclusive Design and Engineering
Chelsea Magin – Lab for Bioinspired Pulmonary Engineering
Keith Neeves – Biofluidics and Biofabrication Laboratory
Brisa Pena – Castellanos – Biomedical Nanotechnology and Tissue Engineering
Brecca Gaffney of the Mechanical Engineering Department and Mazen Al Borno of the Computer Science and Engineering Department, are moving their research into Bioscience 3 as well. This move will help foster collaborative research across the College of Engineering, Design and Computing, and between the University of Colorado Denver and Anschutz Medical Campuses.
Researchers on both campuses look forward to many exciting research collaborations across disciplines that will be facilitated by the expansion into Bioscience 3.
At the CU Denver College of Engineering, Design and Computing, we focus on providing our students with a comprehensive engineering education at the undergraduate, graduate and professional level. Faculty conduct research that spans our five disciplines of civil, electrical and mechanical engineering, bioengineering, and computer science and engineering. The college collaborates with industry from around the state; our laboratories and research opportunities give students the hands-on experience they need to excel in the professional world.
