Loyola University Chicago Center for Translational Research and Education
At Loyola University’s Center for Translational Research, scientists conduct research that can then be immediately taken to a clinical environment and administered to patients. The facility fosters scientific collaboration and optimizes discovery and interdisciplinary linkages, making it one of the most advanced medical laboratories of its kind.
In addition to lab functions, the Center for Translational Research also features a 250-seat amphitheater and a 90-seat lecture hall to accommodate academic and public programs. SmithGroup designers provided programming, lab and vivarium planning, fit-out and civil engineering services in conjunction with core and shell and interior architect, Solomon Cordwell and Buenz (SCB).
