Last fall, the country's largest stem research building opened on the medical school campus. So what's happening three months after the fact? The Peninsula Blog's Kate Johnson takes a look at that today, noting that 85 percent of the building's 550 tenants are moved in and that collaboration is already occurring:
Project proponents designed the space with collaborative, interdisciplinary research in mind, and according to [Mark Chao, a cancer stem cell biologist and Stanford medical student], their vision is already becoming reality. He especially appreciates having so many of his colleagues concentrated in a single building. He notes that meetings often bring together stem cell scientists from separate lab groups and various backgrounds to discuss questions of common interest to the field. It’s a spirit of interaction and partnership, he says, that defines Stanford.
