Animal Resource Centre
Memorial University’s (MUN) new Animal Resource Centre (ARC) will house research in the fields of Biomedical Science, Psychology, Biotechnology & Neuroscience. Located adjacent to the Health Sciences Complex, the new building will replace aging facilities within the HSC.
The new facility will accommodate researchers from across the campus in a collaborative, efficient, inspiring work space. The multi-species facility will accommodate mice, rats, swine, and woodchucks. Areas include rodent production and housing, small and large animal surgery, physiological testing, behavioural testing in an Animal Containment Level 2 environment, as well as all related support and admin areas.
The design of the multi-storey building connects with the existing facilities, accommodates future expansion on adjacent sites for MUN’s Health Sciences program as well as possible future expansion of the ARC.
