Margin of excellence

As the U’s Biomedical Discovery District nears completion, the research within it is already opening doors to better health

In a state with a thriving biosciences industry and rich history of innovation, it only made sense for the 2008 Minnesota Legislature to invest in a state-of-the-art research park at the University of Minnesota. The Biomedical Discovery District’s six buildings — the last one will open in 2015 — will provide 700,000 square feet of space for more than 1,000 investigators and personnel to collaborate on research leading to lifesaving discoveries in cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, brain sciences, vision, hearing, immunology, and infectious diseases.
