Edgar Spalding moved into lab space on the B1 level of Birge Hall as an assistant professor in 1994. The lab was previously occupied, in chronological order, by Folke Skoog, Peter Quail, Ken Keegstra, and Tony Bleecker. The space, renovated in 2012, contains standard benches and equipment for physiological and molecular biology experimentation and a ‘reagent grade darkness’ room for photomorphogenesis research.

The Newcomb Imaging Center (NIC) is located further down the hall. Growth chambers and greenhouses are located one floor below the lab. Most importantly, excellent colleagues are on all sides.
