The Michael A. Evans Center for Health Sciences

The Michael A. Evans Center for Health Sciences is a 140,000 square foot building with classroom, lecture, and office space on four floors. Designed by Indianapolis architectural firms Schmidt Associates and BSA LifeStructures, the building was built to LEED Gold standards (LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification system developed by the U.S. Green Building Council).

Key features include:

  • a white roof
  • rain gardens to manage storm water
  • bike racks and lanes to support alternative transportation
  • building materials selected to emphasize recycled sources

In addition, the demolition of existing buildings on the site emphasized reclaiming as much of those materials as possible for recycling.

Research Labs

Research experience is emphasized as an integral part of the innovative curriculum at MU-COM. We recognize the need to give medical students opportunities to continue their learning experience outside the walls of the classrooms.

Our laboratory facilities provide opportunities for state-of-the-art research techniques in cell and molecular biology, microbiology, immunology and physiology. In addition to the technology located in the research laboratory, other powerful research equipment is available in the School of Math and Science where high performance liquid chromatography, mass spectroscopy and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy facilities are located.

Among the key equipment in the research facilities are a four color flow cytometer, fluorescence microscope, electroporator, gel imager, microplate reader, UV spectrophotometer, multi-channel NanoDrop device, gradient and quantitative thermocyclers, and a full array of other basic bio-laboratory equipment. Equipment for applied physiology research and OMM research is located in the Evans Center.

In addition to the research facilities, students have opportunities in clinical and biomedical summer research programs both on campus and at a growing number of corporate and non-profit facilities.


Medical Library

MU-COM uses an online medical library, providing access to over 1,000 biomedical journals, hundreds of e-books and many specialty databases. There is also a medical librarian dedicated to provide guidance to our students, faculty, and staff.

Although there is no physical medical library located on campus, the university is home to the Mother Theresa Hackelmeier Memorial Library offering a number of hard copy journals and biomedical publications.


Fitness Center

The John and Mary Beth Adams Fitness Center in the Physical Education Center was dedicated on September 24, 2004, and serves as the weight training and cardiovascular training facilities for the Department of Athletics.

Located in the lower level wing of the Physical Education Center, the Adams Fitness Center houses numerous free weight benches and free weights that allow our student-athletes to improve their strength and conditioning. More than 10 bench press areas, two leg press machines, numerous Smith machines, and panels for power cleans allow our programs the best in weight training facilities. Provided by Bob Block Fitness, the Knights spend numerous hours in the weight room to contend for conference championships in the NAIA's Mid-Central College Conference and Mid-States Football Association.
