Groundbreaking for the Veterinary Medical Research Building

A goundbreaking ceremony took place on Oct 8, 2010 for the Veterinary Medical Research Building.

Work is underway on the new Veterinary Medical Research Building at Washington State University. A groundbreaking ceremony on Friday, Oct. 8, brought together faculty, alumni and other officials from WSU to mark the occasion. The 77,250 square foot building will allow researchers to work in new state-of-the-art labs and quarantine space for research.

Steve Simasko, chair of the Department of Veterinary Comparative Anatomy and Physiology, said he sees increased opportunities for faculty, researchers and graduate students to interact and work together on issues such as neurological and behavioral disorders, cardiovascular disease, and reproduction.

“The idea that we’ll go all the biological sciences from plants on one end all the way up to whole organisms and behavior on the other end, the possibilities of collaborative research and innovation is endless” said Simasko.

The building has been in the various planning stages for more than twenty years, said College of Veterinary Medicine Dean Bryan Slinker.
“It’s the kind of research space those faculty need to really take the next step in their research program evolution, and moving the college ahead strongly, and in so doing, help the university achieve its research goals” said Slinker.

The Veterinary Medicine Research Building is the third building to be built in the Research and Education Complex to the east of Martin Stadium in Pullman. For more information about the project
