U breaks ground on a new campus landmark

The University of Minnesota broke ground May 11 on a state-of-the-art research building — the “gateway” to the institution’s Biomedical Discovery District. When it’s complete in spring 2013, the Cancer and Cardiovascular Research Building will bring together top University investigators to discover the next wave of cancer and cardiovascular therapies. Cancer researchers housed in the new facility will study chemical biology with a focus on chemical carcinogens as a cause of cancer and build new models to find better cancer treatments, while heart researchers housed there plan to study heart regeneration and development, muscular dystrophy, congenital heart disease, and genomics.
