From the Arizona Daily Star...
The University of Arizona College of Medicine won a $15 million federal stimulus grant to build a facility for research animals in downtown Phoenix.
The grant from the National Institutes of Health will cover the building cost.
About 33 researchers and staff members will work in the 22,000-square-foot research facility. It will be located next to the planned health sciences education building at the Phoenix Biomedical Campus.
The building will be "green" with recycling, energy efficiency, reduced water use and sustainable site and open-space plans.
