New center on the City of Hope campus is a self-contained translational research facility containing five floors of resources dedicated to advancing cancer research along with the education of future scientists.It provides an integrated research environment for scientists to pursue targeted therapies including immunotherapy, which uses the body’s natural immune system to fight cancer. Complementary approaches that enhance immunotherapy, such as molecular
therapy, are also being investigated. The building’s program includes
research labs, laboratory support spaces and equipment rooms; radiopharmacy suite, GMP-compliant cell production plant; faculty
offices; open space for post-docs and administrative groups; collaboration spaces, conference rooms and an auditorium. The center
will also house the City of Hope Irell & Manella Graduate School
of Biological Sciences. Funding included a $25 million grant from
The Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation, which supports pro-gram-related,nonproft research institutions to promote research in
chemistry and the life sciences, broadly interpreted, and particularly to foster the invention of methods, instruments and materials that will open up new avenues of research in science.
Pan-Pacific’s scope of work included domestic plumbing systems such as domestic hot & cold, sanitary waste & vent, storm drain, irrigation, gas and all related equipment.
