RIVERSIDE, Calif. (www.ucr.edu) – University of California, Riverside researchers who will be housed in the new Multidisciplinary Research Building 1 have been selected.

In May, UC Riverside faculty members were invited to submit expressions of interest for space in the new building, known on campus as MRB1. The facility is intended to enhance collaborations across colleges through shared space.

MRB1 is a four-story, 125,000-square-foot structure. It will house laboratories and other support space for faculty research. Its research “clients” include teams in the life sciences, chemical sciences, medicine, and engineering departments.

Located on 2.1 acres at the corner of Aberdeen Drive and North Campus Drive, MRB1 is scheduled for completion by winter 2019.

In a Dec. 4 letter, UCR Provost Cynthia K. Larive announced the results of months of proposal reviews and interviews. In all, eight research teams — totaling more than 60 faculty principal investigators — were invited to move into the building.
