The new multidisciplinary research building at the University of Notre Dame brings together the College of Science and College of Engineering in an open and collaborative lab environment with a focus on Drug Discovery.

In addition to anchoring the new quads, the building will begin the formation of an internal courtyard shared by future research buildings. Clustering offices and research centers in the knuckle fosters a collaborative neighborhood of interdisciplinary teams. The research labs are modular and adaptable, accommodating evolving science and changing team sizes. Lab zones accommodate hood-intensive or less hood-intensive research. The lab diagram consists of two bays of modular benches and hoods. An adjacent bay of flex zone can accommodate lab, support, or team space. Team space is adjacent to the flex zone and is adaptable to varied team sizes.
