Part of the larger organization located in Washington, D.C., the Carnegie Institution of Washington at Stanford…More University is divided into two departments: Plant Biology and Geological Ecology. At the Department of Plant Biology, researchers investigate the fundamental mechanisms of plant development. Stanford's plant biology program provides many opportunities to receive graduate education in a wide range of subjects. Amidst the scientific research is a dedicated space for art exhibitions. Housing both science and art, the Carnegie Institution is a space for the exploration of several fields.
Founded in 2002, researchers at the Department of Global Ecology study interactions among the earth's ecosystems and how responses will affect the future. Because of its emphasis on energy efficiency, the 11,000 square foot research complex is a high performance building that has many sustainable features.
