Wright State University Neuroscience Engineering Collaboration
Heapy Engineering provided professional engineering services to Wright State University for its new Neuroscience Engineering Collaboration (NEC) Research Laboratory building. The new facility adds capacity and effectiveness, and promotes collaboration between present neuroscience and engineering research facilities on campus.
The NEC’s three-fold mission is to promote funded research initiatives, to enable fiscally sustainable facility operations, and to promote collaboration between the programs that are initially housed within it, and between future partnerships at WSU and beyond. This cutting edge facility promotes innovative technology development and translational research by bringing together preeminent neuroscientists, neurologists and engineers, along with outstanding students who will be trained as the next generation of innovators and healthcare providers.
The NEC serves as a center for translational research and collaboration in the heart of WSU’s campus, with highly integrated laboratories, core resources, and interactive student spaces. The facility includes the following: biomedical research facilities, medical instructional laboratories, medical research facilities, lecture halls / auditoriums, clean room facilities, flexible configuration design and secure hazardous material bulk storage areas.
