Ohio University is building a research facility on the Athens campus for its Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine.
The Translational Research Facility is being designed as a modern, flexible and accessible research and clinical space focused on providing access to public-facing clinical research, the university says in a news release.
The facility will provide space for human subject research and basic science research and include consultation and exam rooms along with a wet lab and animal care facility.
It will also house the Clinical and Translational Research Unit, the administrative offices of several institutes and the Heritage College’s Office of Research and Grants and have community health space that includes a pharmacy.
The new research facility will be adjacent to the Medical Education Center.
The facility is expected to open in 2025.
