UW Medicine’s South Lake Union expansion provides collaborative opportunities to develop life-changing therapies and medical breakthroughs.
Construction on the 3rd phase of the South Lake Union research campus was completed in June 2013. The seven story building houses over 130,000 square feet of research space. The Vision Science Center at South Lake Union serves as an umbrella to bring together scientists from across departments to work on research that will lead to the discovery of next-generation tools for diagnosing, preventing, and treating all manner of eye disease.
