The Texas A&M University Health Science Center recently marked the opening of its newest addition on the main campus in Bryan, Texas.

The 155,077-square-foot Medical Research and Education Building II (MREB II) more than doubles the existing research space for the Health Science Center and adds the square footage needed to bring together all the basic science departments of the College of Medicine to one campus.

In total, MREB II features 48 research typology laboratories, 36 procedure rooms, 28 tissue culture rooms, six drosophila rooms, six imaging cores, one MRI room, and one confocal room. Other key rooms within the building are a vivarium, multidisciplinary laboratory that holds up to 240 students and a biosafety Level III laboratory.
