The Michelson Center for Convergent Bioscience at USC is a 190,000-sq.-ft. research building with various types of cutting-edge spaces on four levels above grade and one basement level. As the future catalyst for discoveries in biological science, imaging, engineering, nanofabrication and collaborative cross-disciplinary studies, the Michelson Center will bring together research in engineering and the biomedical sciences to fast-track the detection and cure of diseases. The building will house up to 30 labs, Class 100 and 1,000 nanotechnology cleanrooms, and imaging suites.
The center is located on the southwest quadrant of USC’s University Park Campus, in close proximity to the majority of the school’s science and engineering buildings, parking garage, and light rail.
This project is designed to contain particular spaces meeting LEED Silver specifications.
