Research facility design and programming is increasingly driven by state-of-the-art technology platforms, both as catalysts for science breakthroughs and as collaboration enablers. This case study of Emory University’s new Health Sciences Research Building II takes a deep dive into the integration and distribution of core technologies in the building which include Integrated Cell Imaging, Functional Genomics, Mass Spectrometry, Computational tools, and 3D cell printing. Session leaders chart the processes of equipment assessment and selection, vendor evaluation and procurement, installation and facility readiness, and the infrastructure planning implications including power, ventilation, and space allocation. They highlight key lessons learned for successful project outcomes.
