World-class research needs world-class infrastructure

These resources provide support and a fertile environment for outstanding clinical and scientific minds to come together to create the best medical science.

In just a decade, the NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore) Research Institute has grown from 25,000 square feet in the Owen L. Coon Research Center to more than 125,000 square feet.  Two facilities--built between 2001 and 2004--are devoted to clinical and translational research and enable NorthShore to offer multiple options for work space, depending on an investigator's needs.

Charles R. Walgreen, Jr. Building

Built in 2004 on the campus of Evanston Hospital, this research and administrative building contains office and laboratory space for researchers and faculty members and is a hub for clinical research efforts.  It houses the NorthShore Clinical Trials Center, a central resource for scientists who need help launching clinical trials.  The Center for Advanced Imaging is also located here and provides imaging technology to support physician-scientists in every medical specialty.

NorthShore University HealthSystem Research Park Building

The flagship of our growing research enterprise, this facility provides clinical and translational research space in the heart of the Evanston Research Park.
