Hōki sa reta kenkyūjo (放棄された研究所?) is an issue of the BIOHAZARD heavenly island manga series. It was republished as the first part of volume 4.


The island survivors have reached the bottom of the elevator and are now exploring the Umbrella laboratory. Some are unfamiliar with the nature of the island. Claire Redfield explains that with the slow collapse of Umbrella after the Raccoon City Destruction Incident, Dr. Oswell E. Spencer founded the lab with the hopes of it developing a mutagenic virus that would make him immortal. Inez Daica suggests there may be anti-B.O.W. weaponry in the lab, and they split up into three groups (Takeru Tominaga and Yuki Mayu; Daica and Marilou Mabou, and Redfield; Zi Li and Laura Bierce) to investigate.

Tominaga and Yuki trigger a door to open, which leads them to a large room containing culture tanks. In one of the tanks is a fully-grown Hunter. The two trigger an alarm, which wakes up the Hunter. Redfield's group finds themselves in an office. Laura notices the same photograph of two people is on every desk, one of whom Redfield immediately identifies as Dr. Alex Wesker.
