Join The Chicago Council on Science and Technology (C2ST) and The International Institute for Sustainable Laboratories (I2SL) Great Lakes Chapter for a night exploring sustainable design and the research occurring at the Northwestern University Simpson Querrey Biomedical Research Center (NU SQBRC) with a Pecha Kucha, building tours, and reception.
The Northwestern University Simpson Querrey Biomedical Research Center (NU SQBRC) promotes research collaboration that impacts the practice of medicine and improves human health by investigating nanomaterials, bionanotechnology, cancer biology, neurobiology, the origin of diseases, molecular genetics, immune deviation, and diseases, to name a few.
Phase one constructed nearly 600,000 square feet of research and support spaces, with future phases to add up to another 16 floors. This project brings together physicians and scientists from Northwestern University, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, the Stanley Manne Children’s Research Institute, The Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab.
NU SQBRC has been awarded LEED Gold certification by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). The facility is the largest biomedical academic research building in the United States. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a USGBC program that recognizes building designs that are resource efficient and cost effective while providing a healthier and greener lifestyle for building occupants.
Tuesday, September 13th from 5:30 – 8:30pm CT, in person at the Northwestern University Simpson Querrey Biomedical Research Center. Check in begins at 5:30pm, followed by Pecha Kucha style talks, and ending with a reception (Open Bar & light hors d’oeuvres) and various tours including tours of the laboratory & mechanical floors!
303 E Superior St, Chicago, IL 60611
This program will be hosted in person at the Northwestern University Simpson Querrey Biomedical Research Center. I2SL will work with our partners to ensure that COVID protocols put in place by the CDC, and the city at large, are followed and well-communicated. COVID protocols, and any other emergent information will be emailed to all registrants the week of the program.
Because this program is in-person, tickets will be limited, so please register early! If you are unable, or decide not to attend, we ask that you let us know so that we can provide the tickets to anyone else who is interested. Thank you for your understanding.
