Biomedical Innovation Building
Building the future of Biomedical innovation
At Stanford Medicine, we call this bold vision Precision Health, and the Biomedical Innovation Building will be the epicenter of a concerted multidisciplinary effort to make it a reality. Like Stanford’s Beckman Center for Molecular and Genetic Medicine before it, the Biomedical Innovation Building will be both a proving ground and a springboard for scientific discovery. Over the last several years, researchers at Beckman have won two Nobel Prizes, two Lasker Awards, and the National Medal of Science.
IN THE HEART OF IT ALL
Just a few short steps from Stanford’s adult and children’s hospitals, the Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge, the Lorry Lokey Stem Cell Research Center, and Stanford’s Bioengineering and Bio-X programs, researchers in the Biomedical Innovation Building will be at the center—literally—of one of the most productive research engines in the world.
LOBBY AND CONFERENCE CENTER
The main entrance will open onto a research quad at the building’s southeast corner. Floor-to-ceiling glass walls will blur the boundary between inside and out, while wood accents create a warm and welcoming space for visitors.
The northwest corner of every level will provide an inviting place to eat, relax, and collaborate. Each space wraps around a glass-enclosed kitchen and features booths with docking bays, dry erase walls, cafe seating, and views of the new Stanford Hospital and surrounding foothills through floor-to-ceiling windows.
WET & DRY LABS
Much of today’s biomedical research is computational in nature, requiring work time outside, but near, the lab. Each wet bench will have multiple corresponding write-up desks nearby. Each floor will also house an additional 24–27 workstations for postdocs and research assistants.
