Doctors tend to establish their practices in the area in which they are trained. With the growing need for medical professionals in the Inland Empire, UC Riverside, as part of the development of its new medical school, required research space to accommodate the needed senior faculty. The School of Medicine Research Building is designed to attract such faculty, supporting their advanced research and providing flexible, adaptable lab space to accommodate other related researchers in the future.
