The biology building houses teaching and research laboratories, classrooms, offices, and a lecture hall. It also houses a computational biology lab, the Reed College Herbarium, and a stockroom. The building was named for Professor Lawrence Edmonds Griffin (1875–1949), a noted marine biologist who taught biology at Reed from 1920 to 1945.
