Scheduled to be completed in the late summer of 2015, the Geisel School of Medicine’s Williamson Translational Research Building will make collaboration between biomedical scientists and clinicians easier than ever before, and—most importantly—will accelerate the movement of discoveries from research labs into patient care.

Located on the campus of Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, the building will be home to interdisciplinary teams of bench scientists, physician-researchers, health-care delivery researchers (from The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice), and biomedical data scientists. The Williamson Building will also be home to SYNERGY: The Dartmouth Clinical and Translational Science Institute and to Dartmouth-Hitchcock’s clinical and translational pathology labs.

For more on the Williamson Translational Research Building, read “At the Crossroads of Discovery and Patient Care,” in which Duane Compton, PhD, now the Interim Dean of the Geisel School, discusses how the building will advance research for the benefit of patients and students.
