A research team consisting of USU faculty members and others received the 5-year grant of $311,000 per year from the NIH to study how male mouse diets affect the health of their offspring.
The Center for Integrated BioSystems (CIB) is a centralized resource for agricultural and life science research on the campus of Utah State University. Originally established as the Biotechnology Center, the center was restructured and renamed in 1991 to embrace the shift in biosciences from isolated studies to integrated and collaborative research.
The CIB encompasses 30,000 square feet with state-of-the art equipment for use in genomics, proteomics, flow cytometry, fermentation, and protein purification. We are able to offer an amazing array of high-end equipment all under one roof, for use by USU investigators as well as off-campus academic and industrial collaborators.
The CIB is an active and vibrant focal point for life science activities at Utah State University. A multifaceted core facility at USU, the CIB is dedicated to agricultural and environmental biotechnology research. The Center's scientists and staff work together to further our core components: Research, a Core Service Lab Facility, Biotechnology Training and Student Education.
