Biomedical Sciences Partnership Building hits construction milestone

AZ-BPB_Perspective-020-1CO Architects reached a milestone in the construction of the Biomedical Sciences Partnership Building in Phoenix, Arizona. The BSPB is a 10-story, urban biomedical and clinical research building for future research faculty supporting University of Arizona research initiatives.

“This building will foster collaborations with scientists that will lead to more cures, better treatments and bring more federal and private dollars to Arizona,” said University of Arizona President Ann Weaver Hart in a recent interview. “All are central to the goals of the Never Settle commitment at the University of Arizona.”

“Phoenix and UofA are one step closer to our vision of creating a truly world-class and cutting-edge bioscience hub in our downtown,” said Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton. “The Biomedical Sciences Partnership Building will be a vital piece of that plan that will take translational research, healthcare, medical education and our economy in exciting new directions.”

BSPB will provide a base for collaborative, inter-institutional clinical and translational research at the heart of Arizona’s Biosciences Roadmap and new National Institutes of Health initiatives. The new building will support ongoing UoA research initiatives organized into Centers of Excellence for cancer biology, neuroscience, traumatic brain injury, bioengineering, and public health informatics.
