Rice University's IBB is located in the BioScience Research Collaborative (BRC). The purpose of the BRC is to provide an innovative physical and programmatic environment where scientists and educators collaborate to conduct bio-related research. It is an interdisciplinary, cross-campus, and inter-institutional resource for new and better ways to collaborate, discover, learn and lead, performing research that benefits human medicine and health.
In February 2010, the IBB's administrative headquarters moved into the BRC. This move was made possible thanks to a generous $1 million dollar gift from the Hamill Foundation, a longtime IBB sponsor.
The IBB's offices are located on the first floor suite of the west-side portion of the BRC, just beneath the second-floor classrooms and facing the courtyard.
