Oregon Health & Science University opened the $190 Knight Cancer Institute in September of 2018 on the South Waterfront Campus in Portland. Designed by SRG Partnership to foster multidisciplinary collaboration, the seven-story, 320,000-sf facility provides biomedical laboratories, administrative offices, interaction hubs, core labs, a 200-seat auditorium, and space for clinical trials. Featuring an integrated balance of wet and dry research spaces, the building accommodates programs in computational biology, early cancer detection, and immuno-oncology. The project team, which included McCarthy Building Companies and Andersen Construction, used an Integrated Project Delivery process to optimize budget, timeline, and resource efficiencies. The facility is expected to attain LEED Platinum sustainable design certification. Ground was broken on the project in June of 2016.
