The University of Houston celebrated its broadening impact in health care research and care with the dedication of the Health and Biomedical Sciences Building on February 5.
Speaking at the ceremony, University of Houston president and chancellor Renu Khator noted the center’s role in advancing research and education for the University of Houston, a Carnegie Foundation Tier One Research Institution.
The facility, which houses teaching, research, and clinical facilities, includes the home of the Texas Institute for Measurement Evaluation and Statistics and the Molly and Doug Barnes Vision Institute, which includes an ambulatory surgery center.
The six-story building also gives the University of Houston a prominent landmark on the Houston skyline. Its beveled facade lets light and shadows create changing patterns as the sun crosses the sky.
Shepley Bulfinch designed the Health and Biomedical Sciences Building in association with Bailey Architects of Houston.
