Nova Southeastern University to Build $80 Million Research Facility
Feb 13 14
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.
