The Ohio State University’s research and innovation enterprise is getting a major financial boost from Governor Mike DeWine and JobsOhio.
The Innovation District will receive a major share of a $100 million investment from JobsOhio, the state’s economic development group, into the central Ohio region, advancing the area’s health sciences and research space. Nationwide Children’s Hospital will also receive funding.
At a press conference on Wednesday, Feb. 17, state and university leaders said the funding will strengthen initiatives that are already underway and allow the university to forge new paths.
Progress continues on the Interdisciplinary Research Facility. Construction on the 305,000 square feet building began in the fall of 2020. It will serve multiple research disciplines, including biomedical, life sciences, engineering and environmental sciences, among others.
Crews are backfilling and compacting soil around the building foundation. Concrete pours continue including the installation of a loading dock.
View the photo slideshow above to track the project’s progress. The Interdisciplinary Research Facility is expected to be complete by the summer of 2023.
The Interdisciplinary Research Facility envisions an innovative and modern environment to serve multiple disciplines. The project is an anchor for Ohio State’s future West Campus Innovation District and will house approximately 305,000 new square feet. Renderings 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...
Columbus Business First recently wrote about a pair of projects set to seek full or partial construction approval from The Ohio State University Board of Trustees.
The outlet wrote that planners are seeking trustee approval this week to start work on the $161.2 million Dublin outpatient center and $132.3 million for the first phase of the larger west campus complex, which joins an also advancing interdisciplinary lab in the new Innovation District laid out in the unviersity's latest master plan.
The university will also seek full construction approval on a $237.5 million Interdisciplinary Research...
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.
“This generous gift is a remarkable testament to Joe and Linda’s deep commitment to the work we are doing at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical...
