Nova Southeastern University - Center for Collaborative Research

SERVICES: Programming, Architecture, Engineering, Interior Design, Construction Management

PROJECT: Located at Nova Southeastern University's (NSU) Davie, FL campus, the Center for Collaborative Research (CCR) is a 218,000 SF, state-of-the-art, LEED Gold, interdisciplinary research facility.


The CCR houses one of the largest wet-lab research facilities in Florida. Researchers will collaborate within this advanced environment to investigate pharmaceutical synthesis, cancer therapy, human stem cell research, biomaterials, wildlife DNA forensics, and ocean biomaterials. Small animal vivariums with ABSL -2 suites and surgical suites are included.


The CCR is home to the Rumbaugh-Goodwin Institute for Cancer Research; investigators from NSU’s Health Professions Division; and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). This federal agency is partnering with NSU, and other Universities to promote scientific cooperation for the Greater Everglades Restoration Project.


The CCR is linked to the Florida LambdaRail (Florida’s Research and Education Network - a statewide high performance fiber-optic network infrastructure linking Florida’s research institutions worldwide). The design follows NIH guidelines, Guide for Care and use of Lab Animals, AAALAC standards, and the National Research Council.
