Center for Novel Therapeutics

Center For Novel Therapeutics

May 2019

The Center for Novel Therapeutics (CNT) will promote creation of new, personalized therapeutics through research conducted by UC San Diego investigators and private sector collaborators in a shared space. The project seeks to unite necessary multidisciplinary expertise to discover new, more effective treatment, diagnostic and prevention interventions and shorten the time required to bring these new interventions to clinical trials.

Students and post-doctoral fellows will be trained in drug discovery, create shared resources and learning forums of mutual interest to academic and private sector scientists. The CNT will also facilitate transition of therapies ready and available for early human testing into the clinical arena through highly sophisticated clinical research resources at UC San Diego.

The 110,000 GSF project is envisioned as a three-story structure that would include a combination of 366 below-grade and surface parking spaces. The program includes wet and dry laboratories, bioengineering core facilities, research support spaces, clinical space, human subject assessment (but not patient care), lecture hall and offices.

Proximity to the Moores Cancer Center is required to facilitate use by clinicians and research subjects. The project also includes pedestrian and landscape improvements.

Tata Hall for the Sciences

Tata Hall for the Sciences render

This state-of-the-art building was constructed for students studying biological sciences and chemistry/biochemistry. The 132,000-square-foot project includes eight new wet and dry laboratories designed to accommodate up to 24 students each. The building features several support spaces like equipment rooms, controlled temperature rooms, a satellite vivarium, procedure rooms, chemical storage rooms, tissue culture room and more. This building has academic office space to support faculty and postdoctoral scholars providing instruction and research along with an auditorium and a Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) facility.

Located in the campus’s Revelle College Neighborhood, this building provides opportunities for expanded research and teaching as well as opportunities for collaboration with chemistry and biochemistry.

Osler Parking Structure

Osler Parking Structure render

Located at the corner of Gilman Drive and Osler Lane, the 1,345-space structure, replaced parking lot P604 (250 spaces). It allows access from Gilman Drive, reducing traffic on Osler Lane.

Peak campus parking occupancy rates range from 94%–98%. The site was identified because several major campus destinations are within a 10-minute walk.
