Hay Dobbs was recently selected by the University of Minnesota out of a competitive field of 13 submissions to design research support space on the Twin Cities Campus. The project will be done for the Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) https://www.ctsi.umn.edu/. The CTSI exists to support and advance the University’s research mission, specifically in the areas of clinical and translational research. Hay Dobbs will work closely with CTSI and the greater university to design a new Support Center within the Phillips Wangensteen Building located in the heart of the Health Services District. The Support Center will maximize the efficiency of initiating and implementing clinical research studies. The Support Center will not only make it easier for faculty to engage in clinical and translational research but also create an infrastructure to support an increase in the number of feasible research studies being conducted. The project is scheduled to be operational in 2019.
