With the abundance of information available, it can be difficult to keep up with the biggest changes in the life science research community. This is a short summary of new life science research buildings under construction featured this year in Science Market Update.
Duke University is a leading research institution, with hundreds of life science researchers conducting cutting-edge research throughout the university's dozens of research centers, buildings, and departments. In order to accommodate all of the research being conducted, theuniversity recently begun construction on a new $103 million, 155,000-square-foot research building.

New York's Columbia University is nearing the completion of an ambitious building project more than three years in the making. Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) will open its new state-of-the-art building this August. Work began on this 100,000 square-foot, fourteen-story glass tower in September of 2013 thanks in large part due to a financial gift from Dr. Roy Vagelos and his wife Diana. So it seems fitting that the building will be named the Vagelos Education Center.
Michigan State University is a leading research institution, with hundreds of life science researchers conducting cutting-edge research throughout the university's dozens of research centers, buildings, and departments. Thanks to 2 recent donations totaling $15 million, the university will expand its research space in the coming years by constructing a new research building in Grand Rapids.
Sandy and Joan Weill have recently announced a donation of $185 million to UCSF to create a new neuroscience institute on the UCSF Mission Bay campus, called the Weill Institute for Neurosciences. The institute will be housed in a soon-to-be-built $316 million facility, providing 270,000 square feet for research and outpatient services where medical practitioners and researchers can collaborate on projects.Read More
The Health Science Facility III will be UMD Baltimore's largest research building by far once construction completes in December 2017. This facility will house researchers from the schools of Medicine, Pharmacy, and Dentistry to catalyze collaboration between these schools and continue to secure UMD Baltimore's spot as one of the top research institutions in the country. This $305.4 million construction project, which broke ground in 2013, will create 428,970 square feet of space spread over 10 stories. This building will feature two adjoining towers to incorporate both wet and dry research lab space. Around 70,000 square feet of this space will be solely dedicated to wet lab research for approximately 92 principal investigators, accounting for just over 1/6 of the total space in the building.
Most exciting, though, is the announcement that space in Health Science Facility III has yet to be assigned by university officials. By keeping laboratory benches unassigned during construction, the university aims to recruit new, interdisciplinary researchers to house these new life science labs to truly evoke a feeling of youth and energy throughout the facility once it opens for occupancy in January 2018.
