07/13/2016: KU Chemistry is excited to announce the new Integrated Science Building (ISB), which is a significant part of the Central District redevelopment plan on KU's main campus.  The Central District construction began in early Spring 2016, with the demolition of Stouffer Place and site preparation work continuing through the summer.  The construction of the ISB building is expected to be completed in time for fall 2018 courses.  The Central District will also include a new student union in place of the demolished Burge Union.  For more about the new Central District, click here.

Taken from the news release Redefining KU's Skyline for Greater Discovery written by former Provost Jeffrey Vitter: "the new Integrated Science Building will be a distinguishing feature of the Central District and Innovation Way. Finding a balance between teaching and research, the ISB will house new chemistry teaching labs that help ensure students have access to the latest techniques while also allowing students to see research advances in the same building. A clean room suite will allow more researchers to pursue cutting-edge efforts related to two new research centers ­­— focused on life sciences and materials science — contained in the structure. As practices and pursuits change, researchers can easily outfit and reconfigure the flexible-design labs. A 350-seat auditorium will enable departments to host conference presentations when not in classroom use.​"
