USC cancer center promotes collaboration to find the cure

April 01, 2008 |

The University of Southern California Harlyne Norris Research Tower, designed by Lee, Burkhart, Liu of Marina del Rey, Calif., is the latest addition to the Norris Cancer Center within the Health and Sciences campus at USC. Built to effect change in the culture of cancer-treatment research and to encourage communication between scientists and pharmaceutical professionals, the biomedical facility creates transitional laboratories with the ability to be completely customized to fit research demands. Features include a double-height lounge and a 200-seat oval conference center to bring researchers together to exchange ideas and work as a team in developing new treatments. The building's 10-story circulation core—referred to as the “lipstick tower” due to its slanted top—is a new iconic symbol for the campus.
