The Center for Reproductive Biology

An inter-institutional program involving 26 departments at Washington State University (Pullman, Spokane, Tri-Cities, Vancouver and Puyallup campuses), University of Idaho, Central Washington University, Montana State University, University of Washington, Spokane Community College, University of Texas San-Antonio, and East Carolina University. Altogether, the Center now includes approximately 85 faculty and over 270 students, postdoctoral fellows, and technical staff, making it one of the largest reproductive biology centers in the world.

The CRB provides the framework for integrative research that fosters collaborations that may not naturally arise.

The Center's main objective is straightforward: to provide opportunities for investigators from across the Pacific Northwest to collaborate and learn from one another.
