Stark Neurosciences Research Institute

Positioned within a tight urban campus, Indiana University’s Neuroscience Research Building became a significant link for connecting leading research to clinical care.

The Neuroscience 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.

Activities in this facility are focused on translating discoveries in the neurosciences into readily available medicinal solutions. A decentralized vertical vivarium offers space for discoveries in the behavioral sciences. Combining research and clinics together through design innovations expedites discoveries into practical application as well as achieve high sustainability ratings.

The structure links directly with the Neuroscience Center to easily offer collaborative research through technical support and centralized analytical facilities. The Neuroscience Research Center is also connected The to a People Mover system, which increases public access and alternative transportation. The building connects with its urban community by transforming a parking lot into a modern expression with windows, native landscapes and stunning views of the Indianapolis skyline.
