Biomedical Innovations Building

Building the future of Biomedical innovation

At Stanford Medicine, we call this bold vision Precision Health, and the Biomedical Innovations Building will be the epicenter of a concerted multidisciplinary effort to make it a reality. Like Stanford’s Beckman Center for Molecular and Genetic Medicine before it, the Biomedical Innovations Building will be both a proving ground and a springboard for scientific discovery. Over the last several years, researchers at Beckman have won two Nobel Prizes, two Lasker Awards, and the National Medal of Science.



Synergy under the same roof

Housing a synergistic mix of disciplines, the Biomedical Innovations Building will drive new definitions of how bioscience is done. It will allow Stanford to attract and retain the most talented researchers. It will produce work that is scalable and exportable. And it will elevate standards of discovery and patient care around the world.

Cardiovascular Research

The Cardiovascular Institute (CVI) is making advances in genetic, imaging, biomarkers, new tech, regenerative medicine, and computational sciences.

Cardiovascular Medicine

Stanford Health Care delivers services to patients with coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, arrhythmia, aortic disease, and heart failure.


Researchers are exploring the tremendous potential of stem cells and gene, molecular, and cellular therapies to find cures to rare childhood diseases.

Personal Genomics

Using therapies tailored specifically to the biology of the individual patient, the genetics team is working to make Personalized Omics Profiles (iPOP) practical and affordable.

Allergy & Asthma

The Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy and Asthma Research will focus on the underlying immune mechanisms of food allergies, asthma, and related immunologic diseases.


The Stanford Initiative to Cure Hearing Loss (SICHL) is building on expertise on four key areas: stem cell therapy, molecular therapy, and targeted neural stimulation.

Immune Therapy Research

The Stanford Human Systems Immunology Center aims to better understand how the immune system can help develop vaccines for the world’s most infectious diseases and other common killers like cancer.

Orthopedics and Sports Medicine

Stanford orthopaedics researchers will be working to predict and track the damage to articular cartilage, aka osteoarthritis, and find new ways to treat it.


Just a few short steps from Stanford’s adult and children’s hospitals, the Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge, the Lorry Lokey Stem Cell Research Center, and Stanford’s Bioengineering and Bio-X programs, researchers in the Biomedical Innovation Building will be at the center—literally—of one of the most productive research engines in the world.


The main entrance will open onto a research quad at the building’s southeast corner. Floor-to-ceiling glass walls will blur the boundary between inside and out, while wood accents create a warm and welcoming space for visitors.


The northwest corner of every level will provide an inviting place to eat, relax, and collaborate. Each space wraps around a glass-enclosed kitchen and features booths with docking bays, dry erase walls, cafe seating, and views of the new Stanford Hospital and surrounding foothills through floor-to-ceiling windows.


Much of today’s biomedical research is computational in nature, requiring work time outside, but near, the lab. Each wet bench will have multiple corresponding write-up desks nearby. Each floor will also house an additional 24–27 workstations for postdocs and research assistants.
