Iowa State University, Veterinary Medical Research Institute
The Veterinary Medical Research Institute’s (VMRI) campus-like environment is made up of a series of well-equipped laboratories. The mission of the VMRI is to conduct sustained, long-term, basic and applied research on animal health issues of major importance to producers and consumers, and to provide research training in the veterinary and biomedical sciences. The faculty is nationally and internationally recognized in applied and basic livestock health research, especially infectious disease research.
Building #40 houses animal colonies and a portion of the facility is a Bio-Safety Level (BSL) 3 AG laboratory. Henneman Engineering is responsible for complete mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection engineering design services to add a mechanical room to Building #40 which houses new boilers, chillers, and air handling units to serve the building. Each system has backup capabilities for research protection.
