This multidisciplinary science and education building in Camden’s “eds and meds” corridor brings together academic programs from three separate institutions in a collaborative research environment. The building is used by Rowan University, Rutgers-Camden and Camden County College for research, education and training.
The design incorporates the MESH Economy Model that collocates faculty and students from different disciplines to share equipment and facilities. This strategy saves money and spurs collaboration.
About two-thirds of the space accommodates research, classrooms, offices for biomedical research and multipurpose rooms. Common areas include a first-floor café and a rooftop terrace.
Research conducted within the Joint Health Sciences Center benefits medical providers and patients while furthering Camden’s transformation into a hub for healthcare research.
“By leveraging the power of these institutions, the Center is poised to become the research and innovation hub of South Jersey,” said Joint Board CEO Dana Redd. “This campus will be the beating heart of Camden’s eds and meds corridor, injecting opportunity, growth and innovation throughout the region.”
