Facilities

Most of the faculty affiliated with the Institute for Mental Health Research are currently located in the Liberal Arts Building. The Liberal Arts Building was newly built in 2013 and houses a variety of departments, including classrooms, offices, lab space, and meeting rooms. New lab space for the IMHR will be completed by the end of the summer of 2015.

The IMHR will initially include approximately 8,000 square feet of dedicated office and research space that will contain research labs tailored to the needs of each investigator, a participant waiting room, a conference room, a computer lab for data processing and analysis, a biospecimen collection and storage room, office space for faculty, staff, post-doctoral fellows, and graduate students, a break room, and a mailroom. As new faculty join the IMHR, there will be room for additional research laboratories designed for the specific needs of each investigator. 

The Liberal Arts Building is very close to the heart of campus (where many undergraduate classes are held) and a 10-minute walk to the Department of Psychology or the Imaging Research Center located in the Norman Hackerman building. This space will allow IMHR faculty members to work in state-of-the-art facilities designed to foster collaboration and innovation while simultaneously allowing IMHR faculty to access collaborators and resources from around the campus community.
