The U-M Medical School’s Biomedical Science Research Building opened in February 2006, providing a new home for more than 100 faculty and scientists.The approximately 470,000 gross-sq ft building's architectural style of openness and flexibility fosters project collaboration and inspires intellectual innovation. Space was planned around scientific themes rather than departments so faculty working on similar projects are encouraged by proximity to collaborate and innovate.
