The catalytic field of bioengineering, which is developing innovative health care solutions for the 21st century, has a new home on the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. The Bioscience 2 Building, a 112,000-square-foot facility at 12705 E. Montview Blvd., promises to propel medical advances and collaborations in its multifaceted role as an education center, research hub and industry incubator.
Campus leaders celebrated the collaborations that created this cutting-edge facility, and looked forward to the pioneering discoveries to come, during a dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony on Nov. 18. More than 100 guests, including students, faculty, researchers, physicians and industry representatives, attended the Bioscience 2 open house, which included tours of the labs and private-industry work spaces.
Event speakers included CU Anschutz Medical Campus Chancellor Don Elliman; Steve VanNurden, president and CEO of the Fitzsimons Redevelopment Authority (FRA); Brian Freed, PhD, executive director of ClinImmune Labs and professor in the CU School of Medicine (SOM); and Robin Shandas, PhD, professor and founding chair of the Bioengineering Department. Other dignitaries included CU Regent Sue Sharkey, Sen. Michael Johnston, D-Denver, and Marc Ingber, PhD, dean of the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
