The Whittemore Peterson Institute finds a home

The Center for Molecular Medicine at the University of Nevada, Reno, opened today. It will house, among other things, the headquarters of the Whittemore Peterson Institute for Neuro-Immune Disease and its research clinic.
"Not only does it have the technical infrastructure in terms of cold rooms and digitalize support required to do first-rate research, but it’s built on the concept of laboratories without walls,” said [Sanford] Barsky, who also is director of cancer biology at the Whittemore Peterson Institute. “That allows a number of investigators studying different diseases to be housed in the same work area and it maximizes interaction and collaboration. And when it comes to research, everyone is a winner.”
