WISCONSIN INSTITUTES FOR MEDICAL RESEARCH (WIMR ), PHASE II
This second of three planned phases of the Wisconsin Institute for Medical Research will continue the implementation of the original master plan for the WIMR, allowing the University to provide the appropriate space to help resolve many of the barriers to effective research success that the University was facing with the aging, inflexible research facilities on the central campus.
The Center Tower will include biomedical research space on floors three through nine, built on a base constructed as part of the first phase of work for the WIMR.
Research activities in this tower will focus on the following:
• Neural physiology
• Neural electrophysiology
• Cell and regenerative biology
• Cardiovascular science
• Primate research
• Growth anatomy histology
• Eye Research Institute
Construction of this phase utilizes building, site, and utility infrastructure already in place from previous work. The design is in conformance with the master planning prepared for the first phase.
LEED Silver Certification is a goal for the project, designed with numerous sustainability strategies.
This project will continue to help UW recruit and retain research talent for the University and allow for successful translational research in a highly collaborative, interdisciplinary environment.
The project was completed while I was working for HOK.
