This research laboratory space was designed to support genetics research using Zebrafish. The project looked at a series of locations on campus to locate both the laboratory research space and the associated tank suite for live Zebrafish. This location in UMass Lowell’s Olsen Hall was selected providing a light filled research space on the upper 6th floor, with the heavier tank suite located in the subterranean basement. See our profile on the Olsen Fish Tank Suite project. The project features a separated write up area allowing students and visitors to come and go from this area while limiting access and potential contamination in the main lab area and visual connection between spaces.
