University of Miami Breaks Ground on New Comprehensive Cancer Center

Designed by HOK, the University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center – Griffin Cancer Research Building (GCRB) will be a hub for cancer research, innovation, wellness and patient-centered care.

The University of Miami celebrated the groundbreaking of the state-of-the-art GCRB on June 2. Set to open in 2024, the iconic building will transform the university’s research portfolio to attract and retain leading cancer researchers and experts to South Florida.

“This premier center will drive translational cancer research and foster clinical excellence,” said Chirag Mistry, HOK’s regional leader of Science + Technology in Atlanta. “We are thrilled to collaborate with the University of Miami to support scientific discoveries in cancer care through the TCRB.”

The 244,000-sq.-ft., 12-story building will include spaces for experimental, computational and clinical research, diagnostic imaging and clinical care. Eight floors will focus on new and emerging therapies and treatments to cure cancer through collaborative research. Flexible laboratories will feature the latest technologies and equipment to support researchers.

Patients will receive holistic, personalized care based on their specific diagnosis with a goal to improve quality of life and prevent cancer reoccurrences.

The GCRB will be South Florida’s only cancer center designated by the National Cancer Institute. Located in one of the most diverse populations in the U.S., it will promote health equity and reduce racial, ethnic, cultural and other disparities in cancer care.
