Combined research dedicated to human health.
Integrated facilities address complex challenges in life sciences
The Donald P. Shiley Bioscience Center houses a diverse group tasked with a common goal: defining ways in which infectious organisms contribute to a variety of diseases including cardiovascular, diabetes and cancer. To design a facility that could successfully and beautifully integrate the variety of spaces needed to house this research, SDSU turned to HED for its expertise in higher education and technically sophisticated facilities.
Adjoining the existing North Life Science Building, the Bioscience Center is the home of the SDSU Heart Institute, the Center for Microbial Sciences, and several other core programs. It houses four floors of research laboratories and a 100-seat auditorium. It’s comprised of four primary facilities, each of which addresses unique aspects of research and development: flow-cytometry, imaging, metabolics, and mouse genomics.
