Plans to build a 150,000-square-foot biomedical research building on the grounds of UC San Diego’s health sciences campus are moving ahead.
The university’s Board of Regents, meeting March 20 in San Francisco, approved initial plans, which call for building a facility to accommodate projected growth in research activities at the School of Medicine and the Skaggs School of Pharmacy.
The building will house a new program in genomic medicine and an expanded neurosciences department.
The university has estimated the project will cost between $118 million and $135 million. The university will need final approval from the regents before it can build the structure.
