University of Houston, Health and Biomedical Sciences Building II
Houston, TX | 2017
The Health and Biomedical Sciences Building II (HBSB 2) integrates teaching, research, and clinical programs in the second phase of the development of the University of Houston's biomedical campus.
The nine-story facility provides a new home for the College of Pharmacy and expanded research space for the university-wide Department of Research. These consolidated lab facilities will promote critical workforce training in the pharmaceutical and biomedical sectors and will support translational research and collaboration among pharmacological research groups. They include specialized research and teaching labs, faculty offices, an expanded Health Sciences Library and a mix of teaching spaces. The facility offers direct connections to adjoining Health Sciences buildings on four floors.
The first and second floors consolidate clinical and clinical teaching programs into an innovative care environment. With primary care, physical therapy and behavioral health services this new model of integrated care focuses on whole-family health and wellness, providing amenities such as a community kitchen that promote healthy behaviors.

"The creation of a Health Science Center at UH... is critical to the economic and social well-being of the region and state. With numerous academic, research, and clinical programs in the health sciences our university plays a vital role in meeting those needs.
Formal creation of this Health Science Center brings a new level of synergy and focus that will broaden the impact of our research and education programs, and provide a clear point of access for the community."
