The expansion of our research endeavors translates into new treatments for patients and new knowledge for the educational curriculum. Researchers need resources to conduct great science, and that’s why we are raising at least $50 million to add professorships, endowments, and laboratory facilities. Education and clinical care will correspondingly benefit from this expansion in research activity.

The build-out of the top floor of GW’s Science and Engineering Hall is a key priority. Slated to open in 2016, it will be the new hub of cancer research. The renovation of laboratory space in Ross Hall is central, as well to the aggressive growth of biomedical research. These facilities will catalyze the entire enterprise and attract the best and brightest minds to GW.

We welcome the opportunity to share our plans with you in detail and invite your involvement and support.
