Nova Southeastern University Key Developments

Nova Southeastern University to Build $80 Million Research Facility

Nova Southeastern University (NSU) broke ground on a revolutionary Center for Collaborative Research (CCR) that will house an IBM supercomputer, one of Florida's wet labs, the NSU Technology Incubator and some of the world's most accomplished researchers. Located on NSU's main campus in Davie, Fla., the 215,000 sq.-ft.-facility will cost approximately $80 million to construct and equip. Construction is expected to be completed in 2016. More than 300 construction-related jobs and another 150 research-related jobs will be created through this project. The CCR will provide wet labs for many of NSU's innovative researchers, as well as a General Clinical Research Center, which is an outpatient facility with a centralized clinical research infrastructure for investigators in multiple disciplines. The new IBM supercomputer nicknamed 'Megalodon' allows NSU to join an elite group of universities with this type of research computing power. The center will also house NSU's Institute for Neuro-Immune Medicine, Rumbaugh-Goodwin Institute for Cancer Research, the Emil Buehler Research Center for Engineering, Science and Mathematics and Broward County's only private incubator for information security businesses. The CCR will be connected to Florida LambdaRail, an ultra-high-speed broadband network that links the state's higher education institutions. The network provides a medium that fosters collaboration and partnerships in support of scientific research, education and 21st century economy initiatives. The CCR was designed by ACAI Associates Inc. based in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and is being constructed by The ANF Group based in Davie, Fla. It is being built to the LEED silver-level standards. The CCR will be located on the southwest end of campus near the NSU Health Professions Division.

Nova Southeastern University to Open Coral Reef Research on Sept. 27, 2012

Nova Southeastern University announced that it will host a opening ceremony for America's coral reef research center on Sept. 27, 2012. NSU scientists are conducting reef research locally, nationally and globally at the 86,000-square-foot Center of Excellence for Coral Reef Ecosystems Research. The facility is located at NSU's Oceanographic Center at John U. Lloyd Beach State Park. At a price-tag of $50 million, the Center has created 22 new academic jobs and 300 construction jobs; and it will employ 50 graduate students as well as preserving 22 existing academic jobs. Research at the Center allows for greater understanding of how reefs respond to threats. Eliminating or mitigating local threats to coral reefs is part of that solution. Some of these are easy fixes that include stopping overfishing, controlling pollution, and establishing marine protected areas. As a multi-disciplinary facility, the Center generates information and research products to help understand, conserve and protect coral reef ecosystems. Its coral reef research aims to: Assess the health of coral reefs and their ability to recover from injury and damage; Examine effects of climate change on reefs; Cultivate species of corals in nurseries for re-introduction to the ocean; Map the extent and nature of coral reefs throughout the world; Study coral growth rings to reconstruct the history of reefs and environmental conditions; Investigate the flow of water in and around reefs; Reveal molecular biology of reef animals to understand connectivity; and Determine the effects of pollution, including oil that may impinge on reefs.
