Marine Biology Research Laboratory
This project renovated academic labs to serve the research of a new marine biology professor at Boston University. Her work focuses on studying the adaptation and acclimation tendencies of coral in response to climate change and its detrimental effects on local ecology. The program requires laboratory research and testing space, a seawater tank holding room to grow specimens, and a dark room for slide review. The design fully renovated existing and underutilized lab space within the university’s biology building to suit the specific needs of the research. Isgenuity worked alongside a consultant to design the seawater tank systems, which includes holding tanks, sumps, and racks of small specimen tanks with room for expansion.
