The UA College of Medicine – Phoenix is part of the Phoenix Biomedical Campus (PBC), a city initiative bringing bioresearch and education to downtown. The State of Arizona and City of Phoenix, as well as other vital community partners, continue to be strong supporters of the college, intent on developing the Phoenix Biomedical Campus as a major biosciences hub and premier academic health center. The campus also serves as a major economic engine: At full build-out the Phoenix Biomedical Campus is anticipated to generate an economic impact of $2.1 billion annually.
As a result of its high concentration of research scientists and other complementary professionals, coupled with its affiliations with the UA College of Medicine – Phoenix, the PBC has become a premier and dynamic location for research activities. In addition to its groundbreaking research, the PBC is also setting a standard in sustainability. By participating in the American College and University Presidents' Climate Commitment and the UA EcoOPs program, the university’s dedication to the promotion of environmentally friendly initiatives is unmatched.
Though the PBC is already 30-acres of various bioscience and education projects, there are plans in place for more than six million square feet of biomedical-related research, academic and clinical facilities, including a Biomedical Sciences Partnership Building, which will be completed in 2017. In addition, the University of Arizona Cancer Center at Dignity Health’s St. Joseph’s, a 220,000-square foot outpatient and research facility, was completed in the summer of 2015.
