The doors are now officially open to one of Florida’s most advanced research facilities – NSU’s Center for Collaborative Research (CCR). Located on the Fort Lauderdale / Davie campus of Nova Southeastern University, the new hub encourages regional, national, and international collaboration among the world’s top scientists. Specifically designed to mitigate vibrations while accommodating state-of-the-art technology and research equipment, the space includes open banks of research bays so that faculty and student researchers from multiple disciplines can observe, share, and advance key findings and discoveries. Additional space on two floors has been reserved for private leasing to qualified companies that are also complementary tenants. Institutes already conducting research at the new center include NSU’s newly named AutoNation Institute for Breast and Solid Tumor Cancer Research, NSU Cell Therapy Institute (a partnership with researchers from Karonlinska Institutet in Sweden), NSU’s Institute for Neuro-Immune Medicine, and NSU’s Rumbaugh-Goodwin Institute for Cancer Research. CCR scientists also work closely with NSU’s Institute of Natural and Ocean Sciences Research and will soon welcome researchers for NSU’s Emil Buehler Research Center for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. More than 200 research projects are currently underway at NSU, including studies on cardiovascular disease, anti-cancer cell therapies and natural remedies, brain disorders, chronic fatigue syndrome, autism, Parkinson’s, consumer chemical testing, coral reef restoration, ecological disasters, and advanced conservation. NSU comprises regional campuses located throughout Florida and in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
