Building 76, the new home of the Koch Institute, features roughly 180,000 square feet of state-of-the-art lab and workspace. The floor plans are specially designed to foster interaction and collaboration among biologists and engineers – both in terms of dedicated lab space and in the common areas, where informal talks lead to new collaborations and spontaneous information-sharing.
The Koch Institute is more than a building; it is a bold commitment to cross-disciplinary research that will shorten the time needed to transform new discoveries into direct benefits for patients.
In addition to lab and meeting space, the building features public galleries on the ground floor that will be home to a changing display of art and information on MIT's leadership role in life sciences.
The Koch Institute features 14 core facilities that provide key technical services to our faculty. From routine (though essential) support services to advanced technical and consulting services, these cores facilitate and enhance the important research being conducted on a daily basis. Many of the facilities also offer training programs that enable Koch Institute staff, students, and postdoctoral fellows to acquire the additional technical and intellectual expertise needed to advance both their work and their careers.
