About Us

The Oklahoma State University Institute for Agricultural Biosciences (OSU-IAB) research initiative enables OSU to more effectively assist producers through the development of new or improved crops and crop production systems.
To optimize opportunities for collaboration with the Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation, Ardmore, Oklahoma was chosen for the institute’s location. Research at the 33,000-square-foot facility focuses on basic and applied aspects of crop improvement through molecular biology, genetics, plant breeding and crop management. In addition to research laboratories and plant growth facilities, the IAB includes an auditorium and conference rooms equipped with state-of-the-art telecommunications systems for worldwide conferencing and distance education programs.
The IAB became operational in August 2011, with research laboratories of professors Randy Allen and Million Tadege occupying the south wing of the facility. Program support leader Dr. Todd Baughman joined the OSU-IAB in October 2011.
