Washington University, in St. Louis, Missouri, recently announced plans to build a $616 million neuroscience research facility in the Cortex Innovation Community. The 11-story, 609,000 sq. ft. building, will be one of the largest neuroscience research buildings in the country upon completion.
“Washington University is one of the premier institutions in the world in neuroscience research, with faculty known for their contributions to the understanding of normal brain development, how nerve cells communicate, neuroimaging, neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, and surgical treatments for cerebral palsy, among other contributions,” said Chancellor Andrew Martin. “With this new building, we are able to offer the neuroscience community a central home and a laboratory environment that can inspire entirely new concepts that allow us to grasp a much deeper understanding of the brain and have a global impact on health and science.”
