Biodesign Institute at ASU named lab of the year in international competition

The Biodesign Institute at Arizona State University has been named 2006 Laboratory of the Year by R&D Magazine. The award recognizes innovative laboratory design that creates a superior working environment and supports research excellence. The annual competition includes industrial, government and academic laboratories across the U.S. and abroad.

Considered the leading international design competition for research laboratories, the R&D Magazine Laboratory of the Year award is presented for new laboratory construction completed during the prior year. Winning projects must be laboratories where the research performed is enhanced by the facility surroundings, where the tenants work in a safe and productive environment, where walking into the facility is an uplifting experience, and where the facility enhances the client's ability to recruit top researchers.

"The design of the Biodesign Institute exemplifies the lab of the future, able to respond to the demands and opportunities of a changing world," said ASU President Michael M. Crow. "Like today's American university, these laboratories must be dynamic."

George Poste, director of the Biodesign Institute and R&D Magazine's 2004 Scientist of the Year said, "We are especially proud of this award because it speaks to the quality of ASU's new research facilities and its role in enhancing Arizona's competitiveness in the biosciences."

The Biodesign Institute headed up a strong field in this year's competition, said Tim Studt, Editor-in-Chief of R&D Magazine.

"The vote for the Biodesign Institute as Laboratory of the Year was unanimous on the first round, which happens only rarely," said Studt. "The other laboratories that were entered were very good in their own right, but the Biodesign Institute was just an overwhelmingly strong candidate."

ASU's Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Building II was also recognized by R&D Magazine, receiving a "High Honors" designation.
