This summer, the Washington University School of Medicine intends to break ground on a new research facility.

The six-story, 138,000 square-foot facility is part of an ongoing effort by the university to encourage interdisciplinary research in biology and medicine.

The $75 million project is slated to house researchers involved in genetics, genomics and biological regeneration.

Washington University says the new facility will help replace aging laboratories with energy-efficient, flexible and open research space.
