A $90 million project will soon be underway to build a health clinic at Virginia Tech as a result of a public-private partnership. The Virginia Tech Board of Visitors and the Carilion Clinic formed the partnership to spearhead research on brain health, infectious diseases, obesity, cancer and more.
“It will give us new facilities, the latest technologies and chances to interact in a way that we haven’t been able to do, and it will form a much tighter bond between Carilion and Virginia Tech,” said Michael Friedlander, executive director of Virginia Tech-Carilion Research Institute.
The project has the potential to bring thousands of students to the research institute. Construction will begin in the next few months with an anticipate opening date two years from ground breaking.
