NMC Greenhouse Opening Workshop and Dinner, May 9th-10th, 2013

The NMC will celebrate the opening of its research greenhouse and the launch of its plant biology initiative with a two-day technical workshop and dinner.  Beth Sellers, Deputy Director of Los Alamos National Laboratory, Dr. Richard Sayre and Dr. Richard Larson, Vice Chancellor for Research at the UNM Health Sciences Center will speak.   

The invitation only dinner will be in the NMC Biolab greenhouse from 6:00-8:00pm on Thursday May 9th.  We will have  beer and wine reception starting at 5:00.  The dinner is being held in conjunction with a technical worksop to launch NMC/LANL joint inititiatives in Biomedical Technology and Plant Biology

The Greenhouse is located just past the airport runway as you are going out of Los Alamos on State Hwy 502. It is a large earth green and orange building on your left at 100 Entrada Drive. After you see it, take a left on Camino Entrada and immediately take another left onto Entrada Drive. Go past the Holiday Inn Express and you will see a service road to the right in front of the Greenhouse. Take that service road around to the back and park. Take the stairway up to the Greenhouse where the dinnner will be located.



The NMC Biological Laboratory supports synergistic cross-institutional collaboration in plant biology. University faculty and researchers from Los Alamos and across the world collaborate in our laboratory on global challenges in food security and sustainable energy.


The NMC Biology Laboratory integrates and analyze genomic, phenomic, transcriptomic, proteomic and metabolomic data to form a complete picture of cell function. Advances in technology allow us to integrate the infrastructure for a complete “omics” capability in one laboratory for the first time. The collective expertise of the NMC partnership in the relevant scientific disciplines function sets us apart in this highly interdisciplinary field. The NMC is uniquely positioned to deliver integrated ‘omics’ infrastructure and expertise and exponentially increase our understanding of cell function.

This state-of-the-art, 27,000 square foot facility incudes 6,000 square feet of wet lab, 6,000 square feet of specialized labs, and a 4,000 square foot greenhouse.

This website provides information about visiting the NMC.  We recommend staying at the Holiday Inn Express located immediately next to the NMC Biolab if you will be coming from out of town.
