  • Gordon Center for Integrative Science: The Ellen and Melvin Gordon Center for Integrative Science (GCIS) Building, completed in summer 2005 ($200M), dramatically expanded space for research and teaching, and has been the home for many pre and post‐doctoral trainees. GCIS is one of the few research facilities in the country to bring together scientists from physical and biomedical sciences under one roof to foster novel, interdisciplinary collaborations. Encompassing 480,000 gross square feet (or 240,000 net assignable square feet), the state‐of‐the‐art laboratories of GCIS house 80 senior scientists and 700 investigators and students. Of the entire building, approximately 279,000 square feet are dedicated the biological sciences, with the remaining portion dedicated to the physical sciences.
