Event Details

Join us for this walking tour of the new Emory Health Sciences Research Building II led by JEDunn. 

HSRB II will bring together 1,200 biomedical researchers from cardiology, vaccinology, neurology, oncology and pediatrics and places them in a 350,000-sq.-ft. building designed to spur collaboration and innovation.

The eight-story building includes laboratory and collaborative spaces for researchers. Open labs and workspaces with soft barriers facilitate rapid discovery. Research conducted here will focus on imaging sciences, biomedical engineering, cardiovascular medicine, child health including cancer, adult cancer, inflammation, immunity and immunotherapeutics, emerging infections and other interdisciplinary programs. HOK is providing lab planning and programming services.

Core facilities include advanced imaging, flow cytometry, a biorepository, genomics and other technologies. Spreading these core functions throughout the building fosters interaction among experimentalist, computationalist and core technology platforms.

The building’s first floor is dedicated to an innovation zone that includes an accelerator space for startups and entrepreneurial research. This will help promote translation of scientific discoveries into clinical and health system technologies. Open views between floors visually connect scientists across disciplines. Shared community spaces foster serendipitous encounters and cross pollination. An innovation zone pairs research with industry, and a first-of-its kind digital platform links building occupants to solve the world’s most pressing challenges. SRB-II is a trailblazing space designed to incite better collaborations and bigger impacts in biomedical research. Multidisciplinary to its core, it brings together experimental researchers, compositionists, and core technologies to solve the biggest human health problems of our time.

Large digital experiential collaboration platforms will drive discussion of burning scientific questions, celebrate scientific discovery at Emory and connect diverse scientific groups. 

Attendance is limited to 40 people and registration is required. 

A parking map and details on the initial meeting location will be included in a confirmation email sent to all registrants on February 5.
