Laboratories in Bell Hall house a cold room, animal care facilities, fully equipped molecular biology laboratories, a photographic dark room, a microscopy room with a state-of-the-art Leo Scanning Electron Microscopy, a common instrumentation room, a computer room with scanners and microcomputers, fossil preparation rooms, a DNA sequence facility with an automated capillary sequencer, and two greenhouses. Facilities available in the GW Institute for Biomedical Studies include a microchemistry core facility with an oligonucleotide synthesizer and a Transmission Electron Microscopy and confocal microscopy suite.
The GW School of Business is home to the Capital Markets Trading Room, a virtual Wall Street laboratory equipped with software and information systems for financial modeling, trading, and portfolio management.
The Graduate School of Education and Development’s (GSEHD’s) Research Laboratory provides GSEHD faculty and students with technical assistance and support services related to conducting research. GSEHD Research Laboratory services include statistical tutoring and a variety of research methods workshops and assistance.
A partial list of School of Engineering and Applied Science laboratories includes:
- Center for Biomimetics and Bioinspired Engineering
- Operates locomotion observation facilities such as the Insect Observation System
- Center for Intelligent Systems Research (CISR) operates four research laboratories:
- Earthquake Simulator
- Created with a grant from the National Science Foundation.
- The GW earthquake simulator—or “shake table” is the only one of its kind on the East Coast of the United States. Powered by hydraulics and with six degrees of freedom, it simulates motion in three translational and three rotational degrees.
- Institute for Biomedical Engineering
- Houses laboratories in advanced computer applications in medicine, biomedical engineering, flow simulation and analysis, and motion caption and analysis.
- Institute for Massively Parallel Applications and Computing Technologies(IMPACT)
- Institute for MEMS and VLSI Technology
- National Crash Analysis Center
- NSF Center for High-Performance Reconfigurable Computing(CHREC)
