Goodwin Research Laboratory
401 College St.
The Goodwin Research Laboratory is one of the most state-of-the-art cancer research centers in the world. The research building features unique open architecture that allows for collaboration among researchers who aim to translate their discoveries into new treatments and clinical trials. The building’s location, adjacent to VCU’s Massey Cancer Center, provides the scientist-physicians easy access to their patients.
The building houses 68 lab modules that can expand or contract to meet the needs of the research teams. It also has small meeting rooms, a large formal conference room and office space for some of Massey’s administrators and cancer control researchers. A unique feature of the building is a healing garden, which provides a restorative space among the concrete and brick of the downtown campus.
