UPMC To Build $300 Million Center for Innovative Science

UPMC announced  that it will invest nearly $300 million to create the Center for Innovative Science, a research facility that aims to revolutionize the way treatments are designed for individual patients.
Funded by UPMC and scheduled to be completed in 2014, the center will focus on personalized medicine and the biology of cancer and aging, with the goal of developing new understandings of disease to improve patient outcomes while reducing over-diagnosis and unnecessary treatments.
The 350,000-square-foot center, to be located on the site of the former Ford Motor Co. Building on Centre Avenue, will support 375 new scientific and administrative jobs. UPMC purchased the building in 2007 and previously had announced plans to add research space there. Construction of the Center for Innovative Science is expected to cost $294 million, with UPMC also contributing to annual operating expenses.
UPMC and its academic partner, the University of Pittsburgh, are recruiting nationally for a scientific leader in genetics and genomics to focus on such areas as the genetic and environmental underpinnings of cancer, the role of viruses, and the normal and abnormal cell changes that occur with aging.
