The largest biomedical research building in the United States has opened its doors: The Louis A. Simpson and Kimberly K Querrey Biomedical Research Center, Northwestern University, Feinberg School of Medicine.
At a major opening ceremony, U.S. Senator Dick Durbin proclaimed, “Now we’re going to fill it with some of the best and brightest in the world to find cures for diseases that are long overdue.”
Revenues are also on the State of Illinois and Chicagoland mind. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) funds $39 billion a year in research and $900 million of that goes directly to research within the State of Illinois. Of that $900 million Northwestern University is the largest single recipient noted Senator Durbin.
