BioScience Research Collaborative
Thoughtfully designed to facilitate and encourage interdisciplinary interactions among inter-institutional researchers, the BRC is equipped for cutting-edge laboratory, theoretical and computational investigations. Research encompasses a wide range of disciplines from chemistry to bioengineering and focuses largely on improving human wellness through science.
FKP designed the interior buildout projects within the BRC and is currently working on additional buildouts as new faculty are recruited. The first phase of this project includes 150,000 SF of vivarium, laboratory, core facilities with mass spectrometers and TEM, classroom and support spaces for Bioengineering research. Hazardous occupancy rooms located on the laboratory floors allow for increased chemical quantities in this high-rise laboratory building.
