  • Louisiana Cancer Research Center

The Cancer Research Center for the Louisiana Cancer Research Consortium is a joint venture between the Health Science Centers of Louisiana State, Tulane and Xavier Universities, an excellent example of a private/public initiative. Located between the primary freeway serving New Orleans and a large historic church, the site is both dramatic as it faces the freeway and intimate as it faces the church. The 166,000-SF building includes flexible research space, office space, and support laboratories for 72 principal investigators and their teams. The design includes conference space, a training facility and parking garage for 300 cars. The joint venture's mission is to create a cancer research laboratory that would qualify for National Cancer Institute designation, a prerequisite status for federal funding. The building was redesigned after Hurricane Katrina to include clinical floors devoted to care for underserved populations in New Orleans.
