Founded by J. Craig Venter, the J. Craig Venter Institute (JCVI) is home to staff and scientists with expertise in human and evolutionary biology, genetics, bioinformatics/informatics, high-throughput DNA sequencing, information technology and genomic and environmental policy research.
The 67,000-sf building acts as a focal point for Endicott College’s campus entrance. The building’s design promotes interdisciplinary departmental collaboration. The business wing is comprised of learning and meeting spaces, showcasing versatile A/V media resources, student break areas and faculty offices. A 150-seat auditorium augments space for both the business and science wings.
The 196,000-sf Health Sciences Biomedical Research Facility accommodates growth for a new multi-departmental initiative in genomic medicine, an expanded department of neurosciences and new faculty in pediatrics, reproductive medicine and bioinformatics. The building is closely knit into the School of Medicine community of buildings and is targeting LEED Platinum certification.
200 Technology Square is a renovation and expansion project that became an experiment in itself. When the Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research commissioned Cannon Design to provide architectural services for a lab that was more efficient, flexible and collaborative yet compatible with researchers’ existing workflow, it challenged the design team to create a new organizational and physical paradigm for the research environment.
The Charles Perkins Centre (CPC) is a building designed to support academics and students from all disciplines working in obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. CPC is a research and education hub that is now home to approximately 950 researchers and 1,455 undergraduates.
The new addition to the single building campus of Lake Superior College, Duluth, Minn., provides future-oriented facilities for the Health and Science programs while consolidating the widely dispersed areas into this building. Growing out of the bedrock, the building adds 34,000 sf and remodels 5,500 sf of the existing 307,970-sf facility on the main campus.
Conceived as a place of discovery and healing, the Hess Center is a translational research building shaped by its dual mission and thematically linked program. Located on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, the 420,000-sf building unites scientists, clinicians and educators, fostering interaction and multidisciplinary collaboration.
Founded in August 2011, the New York Genome Center (NYGC) is a consortium of New York’s leading academic medical centers and research universities. Their mission is to leverage their collective resources to speed the development of promising research. NYGC will enable scientists and physicians to share vast amounts of diverse clinical and genomic data to identify and validate biomarkers and speed the development of treatments.
The Univ. of Florida (UF) Clinical and Translational Research Building (CTRB) serves as the headquarters for clinical and translational science at UF and in the state. The building houses patient-oriented research venues for the Institute on Aging and the Clinical and Translational Science Institute, as well as several research groups studying topics including biostatistics, epidemiology, muscular dystrophy and health outcomes and policy.
The EPIC brings together the traditional disciplines of civil, environmental, computer and electrical engineering in a collaborative innovative research and teaching community. Activities are focused on the development of energy and power production, from microchip fabrication and development of new structural materials to environmentally friendly solar and wind power.
The program called for new lab, classroom and office spaces to replace outdated and undersized facilities in the surrounding science/engineering precinct, expand the school’s research and teaching capabilities, and support the growth in student enrollment.
