Facility Descriptions

Digital Visualization Theater (DVT): The most advanced learning environment you've ever seen (or heard).

The Digital Visualization Theater (DVT) offers instructors the unique ability to immerse students in high-resolution, high-fidelity images projected on a 50-foot-diameter dome. Boasting Sony SRX-S110 projectors, one of the most advanced projections systems available, a JBL 9,000-watt 5.1 Dolby surround sound system, and ten computers for the real-time rendering of 3D objects, the state-of-the-art, 136-seat hexagonal theater envelops students in 360-degree visual experiences, including:

  • Taking them inside 3D models of complex molecules such as enzymes and DNA
  • Viewing the internal structure of the human body as revealed by CT or MRI medical imaging technologies
  • Hurtling them through outer space, from the Notre Dame campus to the edge of the observable universe
  • Viewing the intricate details of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN

Whether studying geological sciences, biological sciences, biochemistry, physics, astronomy, art, or philosophy, at Notre Dame's DVT, the sky is no limit when it comes to learning.

Join Keith Davis, DVT Director, as he describes and demonstrates how the DVT is used in Chemical Education and Research at Notre Dame.

 

Notre Dame Integrated Imaging Facility

The Notre Dame Integrated Imaging Facility (NDIIF) is a state-of-the-art research core facility within Notre Dame Research that consolidates the University's imaging capacity and augments it with powerful new imaging modalities. The NDIIF creates an interactive network of research groups who are connected by their interest in imaging technology and allows them to cross-fertilize ideas and form interdisciplinary collaborations.

The NDIIF makes available to the Notre Dame science and engineering community an integrated suite of sophisticated microscopes and imaging stations that enable expert users to attack the most complex modern research problems and, equally important, resident professional staff (technicians and research specialists) to guide the non-expert users and allow them to conduct experiments that were previously beyond their limits.

The NDIIF brings together two conceptually different groups of science and engineering researchers, the inventors who design new materials and techniques and seek research problems that will test their inventions, and the discoverers who are always looking for improved technologies that can better test their hypotheses of how things work.

Tours will be available of the In Vivo Imaging Core, Histology Core and Optical Microscopy Core, along with the Electron Microscopy Core.

 

Jordan Hall Undergraduate Science Teaching Facility Tour

Opened in 2006, the 202,000 square foot Jordan Hall provides state-of-the-art labs for conducting complex experiments, supporting the mentoring students receive through collaboration with faculty while they conduct modern research in a safe and progressive scientific environment. Few universities in the world can boast of having a single, modern facility where undergraduates can perform experiments using state-of-the-art research instrumentation in the course of their studies in biology, chemistry, and physics. The labs provide pre-lab lecture space and data analysis rooms. This is the largest building on campus dedicated to undergraduate education.

Come check out our facilities on this guided tour.

 

Warren Family Research Center for Drug Discovery and Development

The Warren Family Research Center for Drug Discovery and Development is a collaborative program well aligned with the University's overarching Catholic mission through its focus on the discovery and development of new therapeutic leads for the treatment of unmet clinical needs in a number of areas including cancer, infectious diseases, and a number of rare diseases. The Center brings together chemical and biological expertise and technologies through partnerships with researchers within the University's biomedical research centers at the, including the Harper Cancer Institute, the Eck Institute for Global Health, the Center for Rare and Neglected Disease, and external partners, including regional universities and the Indiana CTSI, Eli Lilly, Inc. and other pharmaceutical companies as well as private foundations including the Ara Parseghian Medical Research Foundation and the Grace Science Foundation.

 

Harper Cancer Research Institute

Investigators in the Harper Cancer Research Institute (HCRI) are dedicated to conducting innovative and integrative research that confronts the complex challenges of cancer. Our programmatic structure fosters multi-disciplinary cancer research by promoting interactions among research groups with distinct expertise and by training early career scientists to work across scientific fields. Clinical partnerships provide key translational insight and strengthen the mission of discovery.

The Mike and Josie Harper Cancer Research Institute (HCRI) is a novel collaboration between the University of Notre Dame and the Indiana University School of Medicine - South Bend (IUSMSB). Harper Hall opened its doors in March 2011 and contains 55,000 square feet of research laboratory and office space. It is located on the corner of Angela Boulevard and Notre Dame Avenue. HCRI welcomes all investigators from the University of Notre Dame and Indiana University interested in addressing cancer-specific problems. Collaboration is a foundational principle of the Institute. Harper research teams are comprised of faculty from multiple departments within the College of Science, College of Engineering and the College of Arts and Letters at Notre Dame in addition to IUSMSB faculty.
