"We can do things that we could not do elsewhere because we have [this] unique environment. It’s state of the art, and I think already people are coming from many different countries (and) are very impressed by the building and the facilities. It’s a very good environment to stimulate (creativity) and innovation.” Frederic Zenhausern, PhD, MBA, Director, Applied Nanobioscience & Medicine, University of Arizona College of Medicine, Phoenix
