Neurosciences Research Building
Creating a neurosciences center of excellence
The Neurosciences Research Building provides research space for psychiatry, neurology, neurosurgery, and basic neuroscience research. Bringing all neurology disciplines together, the facility represents a national model for collaborative, transdisciplinary patient care, research, and education for neuropsychiatric and neurological disorders. Research space is planned for quickly transitioning research discoveries into licensable intellectual property.
The facility layout fosters collaborative research through shared technical support and centralized analytical facilities. Lab flexibility is enhanced with standardized system criteria for ventilation, power, communications, distributed utilities and finishes. Rather than assignment of research space to traditional departmental units, the school has formed interdisciplinary, thematic teams of researchers with broad expertise and a disease oriented focus.
