The Institute for Health in the Built Environment has officially launched at the University of Oregon, and BioBE is pleased to announce it has joined as a founding laboratory, along with the Energy Studies in Buildings Laboratory and Baker Lighting Lab.  The Institute will facilitate the flow of ideas, research, design, policy, and practical action into improving the sustainability of the built environment for the health of ourselves and the environment.

More information about the Institute launch is available here, and a website with information, news, and events is forthcoming.

The new institute’s mission is to develop design concepts for the realization of healthy and sustainable inhabited space. Faculty researchers aim to do this by forming unconventional collaborations to conduct research where architecture, biology, medicine, chemistry, and engineering intersect, and then translate their findings into design practice with the involvement of a consortium of invested industry partners.
