PULLMAN, Wash. – A groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate the start of construction of WSU’s fourth life sciences research building — the V. Lane Rawlins Research and Education Complex — is slated for 10 a.m. Wednesday, June 27.

The complex, to be located between the current Biotechnology/Life Sciences Building and the Food Science and Human Nutrition Building, will promote collaborative and interdisciplinary life sciences research in agricultural research.

This ceremony will honor the long-standing research relationship with the state’s agricultural sector and demonstrate WSU’s commitment to working side-by-side with producers to maintain the state of Washington’s leadership role in providing innovative agricultural products both at home and across the globe.

Faculty, staff and students are invited to join WSU President Kirk Schulz; College of Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences Dean André Wright; and university leadership in this event.
