About the Project
Bringing together researchers from different colleges and departments, the UH Health & Biomedical Sciences Centers Building will be one of the key clinical, educational and interdisciplinary research facilities at the University of Houston. Opened in the spring of 2013, the 167,000-square-foot, 6-story research building provides critical laboratory space and animal facilities to boost the University’s research capabilities. It includes innovative laboratories for patient-based research and critical infrastructure for basic research, as well as collaborative space for cross disciplinary research. Researchers from optometry, psychology, neuroscience, natural sciences, mathematics, pharmacy, social sciences and liberal arts are able to collaborate more easily and readily on interdisciplinary projects that benefit the University as a whole.
