When the Brigham’s newest building opens in the fall of 2016, it will be a hub for state-of-the-art labs, outpatient clinical space and advanced imaging facilities. It will also be home to researchers and clinicians from across many disciplines with a shared vision for collaboration, acceleration and translation of laboratory discoveries into novel treatments for patients. In the months leading up to the building’s opening, this series will feature several major research areas that will be brought together in the new space.
