The 202,000 GSF building has five floors of laboratories that support its research programs, and a 30,000 GSF outpatient surgery center. The five-story atrium provides a large gathering area for lectures and events, and incorporates natural light throughout. Bridges across the atrium connect laboratories and office suites, while interactive spaces further enhance a sense of community among researchers.
