Roy Blunt NextGen Precision Health Building
The NextGen Precision Health Building is an innovative, state-of-the-art research facility that promotes scientific and cutting-edge industry partnerships. To meet its “all required resources” program goal, the facility includes open wet lab space, a good manufacturing practice (GMP) and clean room suite, a vivarium for both small and large animals, an 18-device electron microscopy core facility, and a state-of-the-art imaging suite including two MRIs and one Positron Emission Tomography-Computed Tomography (PET CT) for both animal and human use.
Unique to on-campus research, this facility also includes leasable industry partner space and shell laboratory space directly adjacent to the principal investigators’ research space, to accelerate the transition of innovations from the research lab directly to the public. Located at a prominent entrance to the campus, the NextGen Precision Health Building is an iconic symbol for the University’s goal of growing its position as a global leader in biomedical, electrical, biomolecular, mechanical, and industrial engineering disciplines within both veterinary and human medicine.
