Bee Research Laboratory

St. Paul
The current bee research facility on St. Paul campus is no longer adequate to accommodate the growing and urgent need for increased bee research and beekeeper training. A new state-of-the-art Research and Teaching facility will be transformative for bee research. This facility will efficiently combine research and teaching space to improve bee health and biodiversity, train new undergraduate and graduate students, mentor new beekeepers and assist commercial and backyard beekeepers. The new research facility will showcase the importance of bees to agriculture and to human nutrition, health and food safety. And it will expand and enhance our internationally recognized research program and provide substantial benefits to the University through increased federal funding and interdisciplinary and international collaborations. A 10,700 SF academic research laboratory located on the St. Paul campus for research work in bee health and biodiversity, training and outreach.
