The Rocky Mountain Regional Biocontainment Laboratory (RMRBL) is located in the Judson Harper Research Complex on the University's Foothills Campus off Rampart Road just west of Overland Trail.
The RMRBL is one of the most technically advanced laboratories of its kind. In 2008 it formally received "Select Agent" research approval from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, making it the first lab of its kind in the country to begin studying these highly regulated bioterrorism agents.
The RMRBL is one of 13 RBLs
in the United States. Although predominately occupied by CSU researchers, the RMRBL serves researchers in the Health and Human Services Region VII which encompasses Colorado, Utah, Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota and South Dakota.
