Health Sciences Facility III
The School of Medicine’s new research building, Health Sciences Facility III (HSF III) is setting a new standard of excellence in biomedical research, innovation and discovery. Faculty researchers began moving into the new facility in January and a grand opening will be held in September 2018.
Working in HSF III’s state-of-the art laboratories, with cutting edge genomic technology, faculty physicians and scientists are working together on breakthrough treatments for cancer, diabetes and heart disease - improving the health and well-being of Maryland citizens, and people around the world.
Health Sciences Facility III will accelerate the pace and scope of innovation and discovery and house our most well-funded investigators working to answer “big science” research questions. HSF III brings together a large conglomerate of programs, using a multidisciplinary approach to advance medicine beyond our imagination. Research programs include:
- The Institute for Genome Sciences
- The Program in Personalized and Genomic Medicine
- Center for Epigenetic Research in Child Health and Brain Development (CERCH)
With 439,000 square feet, Health Sciences Facility III is the largest building ever constructed in the University System of Maryland. Rising above Baltimore Street on the University of Maryland, Baltimore campus, the new research building will provide room to grow for the School of Medicine’s life-saving research programs.
A vitally needed economic engine, Health Sciences Facility Three will create hundreds of jobs in West Baltimore, stimulate economic growth, and generate revenue for the City and State.
