The Ohio State University Board of Trustees approved construction, and the remaining balance of design services, for an Interdisciplinary Research Facility to be located in the heart of its new West Campus Innovation District.
“The West Campus Innovation District will foster an environment that attracts both world-class researchers and leading-edge companies to work in close proximity,” said Dr. Morley Stone, senior vice president for research. “This collaboration will allow for a collision of people and ideas and ultimately new areas of research that will drive the innovation landscape for the region for decades to come.”
Joe and Linda Chlapaty have made a $15 million commitment to Ohio State in the hopes of furthering research into atrial fibrillation, an irregular heartbeat that can lead to stroke, heart failure and other serious complications.
The Chlapatys’ investment will support space within the Interdisciplinary Research Facility, part of Ohio State’s new Innovation District on west campus.
Investments such as this one can have a broad impact on helping facilitate research.

Columbus Business First reports that Ohio State has approved a $2.37 billion 5-year capital plan to support Framework 2.0 and the university's strategic plan. It is an historic number for Ohio State as the university delivers on major projects identified in the campus master plan.
As reported by the outlet, classroom and laboratory buildings make up 47% of the new projects, and 39% are for OSU Wexner Medical Center.

Myers expects to see the Interdisciplinary Research Facility, Energy Advancement and Innovation Center and the Wexner Medical Center West Campus Ambulatory Facility up sometime over the next 24 to 36 months. The buildings will support research and technology commercialization.
“A few years ago, the trustees became interested in taking the approximately 280 acres, south of Lane, and developing a plan to create an innovation campus out there,” Myers told the outlet.
The Ohio State University President Michael V. Drake sat down with Columbus Business First to discuss the future of Ohio State's west campus development. The publication summarized that the thing that excites him most about the emerging west campus innovation district isn't what buildings are already planned, but what is still left unknown.
"One of the most exciting parts of all of this are things we haven't envisioned yet," Drake told Business First. "Things that will come up and create the future."
In alignment with Framework 2.0, the university has announced three...
