Designed by Lyons, Institute of Molecular Science is located in La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia. LIMS will be a world-class facility for molecular science, biotechnology and nanotechnology research and research training. The Institute will align with the broader Northern Melbourne Science precinct and support growth in the burgeoning Australian biotechnology industry.
LIMS will comprise three levels of teaching laboratories, support spaces, a ground-level lecture theatre and ‘equipment barn’. The upper three levels will include research laboratories and office space. LIMS is projected to generate $15m in research income annually and up to 220 extra research positions will be available once the building is open.
