Description: The 200,000-square-foot, 12-story building will be located on the site of the A.D. Williams Building, at the corner of 12th and Marshall streets. The building will be taken down over the course of six months, beginning in early spring 2010. Construction is expected to begin in fall 2010 and be completed in spring 2013.

The new building’s flexible learning environments are a vital element in the medical school’s innovative curriculum redesign, which features integrated learning modules, earlier exposure to clinical experience and multidisciplinary training. Two floors of the building will be home to the Center for Human Simulation and Patient Safety, a state-of-the-art facility serving medical student, resident and continuing medical education. The building will also support the discovery mission of the School with two floors dedicated to cancer research, and additional space for structural biology.
