The Stanley J. Aronoff Laboratory of Biological Sciences (Aronoff Lab)
A 5-story laboratory building located in the 12th Ave. medical/life-sciences research corridor; dedicated, occupied, 2004
Provides 3rd Floor Access to Biological Sciences Greenhouse Elevator
The five-story, high-tech laboratory building, designed to facilitate concentrated, leading-edge biological research, is named for former, longtime Ohio Senate President Stanley J. Aronoff.
Built to be energy-efficient and “user-friendly,” its many windows, spacious indoor lobby, opening onto an outdoor patio that connects to the adjacent Jennings courtyard, provide a welcoming environment for both inhabitants and visitors.
In addition to housing the Department of Evolution, Ecology and Organismal Biology (EEOB) and its faculty and student researchers, Aronoff Lab provides modern, state-of-the-art laboratories and offices for molecular genetics’ researchers and their students.
Offices and conference rooms are located in exterior corridors, while the building’s key-controlled center contains 32 research laboratories, cold rooms, autoclaves, dark rooms, instrumentation rooms and other research support spaces. Lab hallways function as linear equipment zones housing safety devices and shared equipment.
For convenience of EEOB and molecular genetics researchers, many of whom have research and teaching projects underway in the adjacent Biological Sciences Greenhouse, a 3rd-floor bridge connects Aronoff Lab to the 12th Avenue Garage’s Bio Sci Greenhouse elevator.
