New State-of-the-Art Neuro-oncology Lab at the University of Florida

  • Project Owner: University of Florida
  • Location: Gainesville, FL
  • Completion Date: July 2021
  • Project Size: 10,000 sf
  • Partners: Walker Architects

Dedicated to a Cure.

Located on the first floor of UF’s Basic Science Building, the new world-class neuro-oncology laboratory includes 13,120 square feet of lab and workspace.  The laboratory’s open design can support over 64 research scientists, fellows, and trainees and features nine faculty offices and a shared faculty workroom that can accommodate three additional faculty members for the team led by Dr. Duane Mitchell, M.D. Ph.D.  Dr. Mitchell is a renowned cancer researcher at the University of Florida and leads a comprehensive brain tumor program focused on translational research.

The lab features four cell culture rooms, 15 isolation stations, and 40 workstations. It also houses a clinical isolation room to process brain tumor specimens in an isolated environment and a dedicated room for specialized microscopy and flow cytometry to analyze individual cancer and immune cells.

The new laboratory not only supports the existing team but also provides room for additional growth and recruitments. Its open design concept is optimized for even more collaboration and exchange of ideas among research groups. The project will be pursuing GOLD LEED-IDv4 certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.

The laboratory was made possible by a gift from The Harris Rosen Foundation that also led to the launch of the UF Health-led ReMission Alliance Against Brain Tumors in 2019. The state-of-the-art facility is named in memory of Harris Rosen’s son Adam Michael Rosen, who received care at UF Health and died in November 2018 after a prolonged fight against brain cancer.

This is Scorpio’s second renovation project for the Basic Science Building. The Ground Floor Renovation was completed in 2016.

This is truly one of the most extraordinary research spaces I’ve seen in my career. Along with the additional space for people, it brings us more functional, specialized research spaces and equipment for the work we’re doing. Dr. Duane Mitchell, M.D., Ph.D., Director, UF Clinical and Translational Science Institute
