Thomas Jefferson University is on the forefront of research lab science and healthcare development. Although the university is based in Philadelphia, Thomas Jefferson administrators and research lab scientists envision the school breaking out into the global science research market. Dr. Stephen K. Klasko, president of Thomas Jefferson University, has an innovative plan to unite Thomas Jefferson University, Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals and the institution’s 800 physicians under a single entity.
Science Market Update
Emory University is undergoing a $52 million expansion project on the Sanford S. Atwood Chemistry Center. The new Emory research building expansion is largely funded by profits from an HIV-AIDS drug discovered by researchers in the building. This large amount of funding at Emory University will ensure that the space is bright, beautiful and also functional. Sunlit foyers and communal spaces will characterize the new building.
Washington University School of Medicine is constructing a new $75 million, 138,000 square-foot research building with a June 2015 target date for completion. The energy-efficient new research building at Washington University will feature state-of-the-art, highly flexible laboratory space where researchers will focus on the most prominent problems in human biology.
The University of Georgia, Athens will receive $44.7 million for the construction of a new UGA building, the Science Learning Center. The 122,500-square-foot facility will add 33 teaching labs to the South campus for the chemistry, biological sciences, plant biology and physics departments.
Columbia University Medical Center administrators recently broke ground at a new medical facility, which will be called the Medical and Graduate Education Building. Columbia University is planning on completing the new medical facility by 2016. Located on Haven Avenue between 171st and 172nd streets in Washington Heights, the building is expected to help resolve the medical center’s space shortages. Architecture firms Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Genseler designed the building, which is described as modern and includes floor-to-ceiling glass windows and a terrace on top of the building with great views of the Hudson River.
Medical students at Duke University finally have their own home after being spread out over the medical campus for 73 years. Filled with natural light from the glass walls and study nooks for doing work, this building is a gorgeous feat of architecture. It has been named the Mary Duke Biddle Trent Semans Center for Health Education, and it’s located right in the middle of the medical campus. The center provides a space for medical students who used to have to study in the basement of Duke Medicine’s Purple Zone, the Davison Building and every so often, spaces rented for large gatherings.
