Celebrate 10 years of NCRC on Aug. 22
Ten years ago this summer, what is now known as the North Campus Research Complex was born, when U-M took ownership of a vacant former pharmaceutical research campus in the northeast part of Ann Arbor.
Over the past decade, it’s been transformed into a hub for innovative research and clinical activity. More than 3,500 faculty and staff now work there.
On Aug. 22, the entire U-M community can help celebrate the 10th anniversary of NCRC with special events and tours. Find full details by clicking here.
The day begins with a group photo for anyone who works at NCRC, at 11 a.m. in front of Building 18.
Bring a lunch to the Research Auditorium in Building 10 any time between noon and 1:30 p.m. to learn about NCRC-based research and other topics, through short talks given by scientists and others.
Take an “NCRSee” self-guided tour anytime between 1:30 and 3:30 p.m., using maps that will be available at the main entrances of Buildings 16, 18, 32 and 520. Choose to visit more than a dozen spots on both sides of Huron Parkway, to explore what NCRC has become and what’s yet to come.
Celebrate the anniversary at a reception in the Dining Hall in Building 18 at 3:30 p.m., with remarks at 4 p.m. by Marschall Runge, M.D., Ph.D., Steven Kunkel, Ph.D., and David Canter, M.D., followed by refreshments until 5:30 p.m..
