Clinical and Translational Research Building
The University of Florida is building a major new research building to serve as the headquarters for clinical and translational science at UF and in the state. The building will house patient-oriented research venues for the Institute on Aging and the Clinical and Translational Science Institute.
Approximately 120,000 gross square feet will be available spanning two main wings (see artist conception photos below). Construction costs are approximately $45 million, with $15 million coming from an NIH ARRA grant awarded to the Institute on Aging.
Units in the new building include:
- Clinical and Translational
- Institute on Aging
- Department of Aging and Geriatric Research
- Department of Biostatistics
- Department of Epidemiology
- Department of Health Outcomes and Policy
Groundbreaking occurred on May 26, 2011. The building is scheduled for occupancy in the summer of 2013.
