Florida Institute of Technology broke ground in October of 2020 on the $18 million Health Sciences Research Center in Melbourne, Fla. Enabling the university to expand its biomedical engineering and premedical programs, the 61,000-sf facility will feature a sophisticated anatomy lab with virtual dissection tables, an imaging suite with florescent and laser scanning microscopes, and labs for orthopedic research, tissue engineering, and computer modeling and simulation. Designed by MelD Studio Architecture, the collaborative three-story building will also include a full-height glass atrium, a café study lounge, and 22,300 sf of instructional space. Completion is expected in December of 2021.
