Biosecurity Research Institute (BRI) Tour
The Biosecurity Research Institute is a guarded facility located on the north end of Kansas State University in Pat Roberts Hall (across from the REC). Join us during this unique opportunity to meet Will Baldwin, BRI Information Technology Officer, as he tours us through the facility!
"The Biosecurity Research Institute (BRI) at Pat Roberts Hall on the Kansas State University campus is a unique biocontainment research and education facility. The BRI supports comprehensive "farm-to-fork" infectious disease research programs that address threats to plant, animal, and human health. Home to 113,000 square feet of lab, education, and administrative space, this BSL-3, ABSL-3 and BSL3-Ag facility offers countless research and education opportunities." ~BRI Website
