USC Michelson Center Celebrates Long Awaited Opening

After three years of construction one of the largest buildings on USC’s campus in now complete. The Michelson Center for Convergent Bioscience celebrated a ribbon cutting last week, marking an important step forward in cutting edge bioscience research for the University. The 190,000 square foot facility unites both scientists and engineers in bioscience research related to new drug therapies, high-tech diagnostics and biomedical devices. Undergraduate students also benefit from the new structure as the host of a Bridge Undergraduate Science program – a collaboration across multiple disciplines. Congratulations to architect HOK, contractor DPR Construction and JAMA team members Kurt Clandening, Greg Orozco and Art Padilla. Congrats!
