Interdisciplinary Research Facility
The Interdisciplinary Research Facility envisions an innovative and modern environment to serve multiple disciplines. The project is an anchor for Ohio State’s future Innovation District and will house approximately 305,000 new square feet. Renderings (shown below) provide a sneak-peek at the proposed five-story laboratory building. The project advances the university’s strategic plan, and Framework 2.0, by serving multiple research disciplines, including biomedical, life sciences, engineering and environmental sciences, among others. In addition, two floors will be dedicated to The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center including its new Pelotonia Institute for Immuno-Oncology.

The Interdisciplinary Research Facility will support both wet lab researchers and computational researchers. Each of the five floors of the building will be designed to facilitate collaboration. The project will also include a 29,000 square-foot exterior plaza for event and collaboration space. It will be co-located with the Energy Advancement and Innovation Center.
