The new 300 Cedar St. building increases the medical school's laboratory space by 25%.

Space Will Help Transform the Face of Medicine

While planning for the 300 Cedar St. building began in the late 1980s, almost a decade before the arrival of Medical School Dean Dr. David Kessler, he is credited with gaining the confidence of the Yale Corporation to proceed with the project.

Kessler maintains that the new building and the additional construction and renovations around the medical school campus are needed to keep Yale competitive in the world of research, in medical school education and in recruiting and retaining talented scientists.

"The facilities plan is about more than bricks and mortar," Kessler said. "It's about people and ideas, and the kind of research environment that nurtures both. Yale's bold investment will allow us to do what we must do best: sustain a brilliant and creative faculty as it transforms the face of medicine with its stunning scientific advances.

"Every field of medicine is being transformed by recent advances in molecular biology, cell biology and genetics. With this critically important new investment, Yale investigators look forward to leading the way in biomedical research of the future.

"There is no doubt that this investment will affect the future of the medical school and quicken the pace at which we can bring discoveries in the laboratories to the benefit of our patients," Kessler added. "It will enhance our research space, our educational programs and the opportunities we can afford our students."
