The CMiST laboratory space is currently shared with Dr. William DePaolo’s research group which occupies three laboratories on the third floor and a dedicated microscope room on the fourth floor of the K-wing in the Health Sciences Building (HSB) at the University of Washington Medical Center.


Main Laboratory (HSB K327A)

The main laboratory has eight lab benches and can comfortably support 8-15 people. The lab is designed with shared or touch down bench space for CMiST clinicians and junior faculty who may not have space of their own, but who are trying to obtain preliminary data for grants and independence.
