Sneak Peek at the Second Tower of the Wisconsin Institutes for Medical Research
The second tower of the Wisconsin Institutes for Medical Research is nearing completion.
The Wisconsin Institutes for Medical Research - also known as WIMR - represents a new way of doing science. The complex's open design encourages collaboration among basic, clinical and population health scientists. WIMR is dedicated to accelerating the translation of laboratory discoveries to the clinic and into communities.
Space in the second tower will be assigned to researchers focused on cardiovasclar research, neuroscience, and cell and regenerative biology. Scientists from the McPherson Eye Research Institute and McArdle Laboratory for Cancer Research will also move into WIMR II.
McArdle researchers will be able to work in close proximity to scientists at the UW Carbone Cancer Center, which has laboratories in the first tower of the Wisconsin Institutes for Medical Research.
As the final touches are being made, we offer a glimpse of the building's interior.
