This unique 652,510 SF, multi-use facility houses five stories of advanced biomedical research, as well as undergraduate science education, and medical and dental professional programs which serve over 1,600 students annually. One of the highlights of the building are five floors of collaborative research facilities, designed to accommodate a rotation of the nation’s premier cancer research scientists. In support of these research efforts is the Oregon Center for Spatial Systems Biomedicine - housing seven electron microscopes (TEM and SEM) and numerous ILEM and other optical microscopes. All of which have extremely low tolerances for vibration, electromagnetic interference (EMI), heat and cooling variances, and lighting requirements. The project also includes the Skourtes Tower, a 12-story above-grade structure, housing the School of Dentistry Clinical training, clinics, research spaces and two levels of underground parking.
