This week Dana-Farber Cancer Institute celebrated the opening of the Cell Manipulation Core Facility. The project is a culmination of multiple years of planning, design and construction and is one of the largest facilities in the United States specializing in the research and production of customized cancer treatments.
The renovation consolidated programmatic elements formerly spread across eight locations on Dana-Farber’s campus into a centralized location on the 11th and 12th Floors of the Smith Building. The facility serves patients at Dana-Farber, but will also facilitate treatments and research for the greater Longwood community of Boston Children’s Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
Following the ribbon cutting ceremony, the attendees toured the new state-of-the-art facility. Members of the Payette project team attended and shared some photos from the day’s festivities.
