About the Cancer Research Building

Opened in September 2007, our cancer research building is the first new building to be constructed on the University of Tennessee Health Science Center campus in 17 years. A major step in the pursuit of health care discovery, the new building features:

  • More than 90,000 square feet, 32 research laboratories, 33 offices and a 60-seat auditorium
  • Laboratory layouts configured in open, wall-less modules to foster collaboration among investigators from several UTHSC colleges
  • Laboratories housing state-of-the-art equipment that will support research on experimental therapeutics to treat adult cancer
  • The Molecular Resource Center, which offers the university community access to the latest technologies for exploring the molecular bases of disease and basic biological processes
  • Interdisciplinary basic and translational cancer research conducted by College of Dentistry, College of Medicine and College of Pharmacy scientists
