Biographical Note for University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Institute for Genomic Biology (2001-) :

The Institute for Genomic Biology (IGB) is a program designed to unite numerous biotechnology projects on the Urbana campus and have them centrally-located. Development of the IGB began in 2000 with an initiative, proposed by a committee that had been established by the Vice Chancellor for Research and supported by the Governor of Illinois, to "unite research and educational training, and ultimately to attract major research funding and high-caliber scientists and students."1 In 2001 the Board of Trustees approved the design of a new building to house the program. This building was initially designated the Post-Genomic Institute.2 As the initiative became articulated and the program expanded, it was requested in 2003 that the Board of Trustees change the building name to the Institute for Genomic Biology Building to reflect the new nature of the program.3 Faculty and affiliates were selected from numerous campus departments and colleges.4
