Knight Cancer Institute inspires collaboration: Building a new model for research workspace

Tiffani Howard, PhD
Program Dir for Research Strategy & Ops
Oregon Health & Science University

The LEED Platinum Knight Cancer Research Building is the product of carefully crafted guiding principles established at project outset to create a collaborative culture of innovation in team science. Tiffani Howard examines an institute-wide shift in culture using the building process, design, and move-in as tools. She profiles leading-edge features of the research workplace including ubiquitous access to natural light, LEED v4 healthy materials, mingled wet/dry and core labs, small-group informal collaboration spaces, deliberate interaction and heads-down work areas. She illustrates how project decisions were continually re-centered on project principles to ensure science program objectives were met while incorporating innovative new ideas.
