Construction is set to begin on a two-building, 555,000-square-foot research complex in New Brunswick, the future home of the state’s flagship medical school and a place where startups can work side by side with New Jersey’s top health care and academic institutions.

Known as the New Jersey Innovation and Technology Hub, the $665 million project will be home to both the Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and the Rutgers Translational Research facility, which will allow for collaboration among scientists from varied backgrounds. Both uses will complement an innovation center that will feature collaborative workspaces, wet and dry laboratories, conference facilities and other amenities that will allow researchers to convene with budding technology and life sciences firms.
