Large Animal Research Station
920–928 and 936 Yankovich Road
In 1979, a major grant from the National Science Foundation founded the Robert G. White Large Animal Research Station on Yankovich Road. Administered by the Center for Research Services, the station’s purpose is to conduct research on large ungulates, which are hoofed, cud-chewing mammals such as moose, muskoxen, caribou and domestic reindeer. In June 2002, the station was rededicated as the Robert G. White Large Animal Research Station.
Robert White joined the faculty of the Institute of Arctic Biology in 1970. He is a fellow of both the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the Arctic Institute of North America. He was largely responsible for the creation of LARS and served as its director from 1979-1998, when he retired. White is an internationally recognized researcher in the field of large animal nutritional ecology and remains active in research in his area of expertise.
