WIMR II Receives LEED Gold Certification
The second tower of the Wisconsin Institutes for Medical Research (WIMR II) has received LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
LEED - Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design - is an ecology-oriented building certification program. It is considered the benchmark for environmentally conscious, sustainable construction.
The nine-story WIMR II opened in 2014 and is home to about 1,300 researchers. The building, like the first WIMR tower, was designed to foster collaborative science and more quickly translate discoveries into new approaches to disease prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
Departments and centers occupying WIMR II include:
- Cardiovascular Research Center
- Core Research Laboratories
- Department of Cell and Regenerative Biology
- Department of Medical Physics
- Department of Medicine
- Department of Neuroscience
- Department of Radiology
- McArdle Laboratory for Cancer Research
- McPherson Eye Research Institute
