Freidenrich Center for Translational Research
The Jill and John Freidenrich Center for Translational Research (FCTR) is the new home for innovative, collaborative, and interdisciplinary clinical and translational research at the School of Medicine and the University. The building hosts two important clinical and translational research (CTR) programs at Stanford: the NCI-designated Cancer Center and the NCRR-supported Center for Clinical and Translational Education and Research (Spectrum). The co-location of support resources for the two centers is creating an increased efficiency and synergy by creating an interactive environment for the investigators and research support professionals involved in clinical and translational research. These interdisciplinary research teams are now be in close proximity to the Stanford Clinical and Translational Research Unit (CTRU), the facility where interactions with human subjects takes place, which is located on the first floor in the new building.
The project's scope included the demolition of the existing building at 800 Welch Road and construction of a new 30,200 gross square foot building. The 1.4 acre lot was transformed to create meeting places, play areas for children and serve as a retreat, both visually and physically for faculty, staff, and visitors.
