The $81 million new Biomedical Learning and Teaching Building (BLTB) opens its doors as a world-class hub for undergraduate biomedical sciences students. The research-led facility includes two superlabs, large teaching labs, breakout spaces and informal learning spaces.

Designed for high energy efficiency and storage, the BLTB is connected to the Monash Microgrid and plays an integral role in the University’s commitment to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2030.

“Putting laboratory practicals at the heart of student learning is a very deliberate strategy as it directly builds understanding of how new biomedical knowledge is gained and the impact it can have,” said Professor John Carroll, Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute.
