Interprofessional Education: The Board of Health Sciences Deans appointed the the Center for Health Sciences Interprofessional Education, Research and Practice (CHSIE) as the coordinating body for interprofessional education (IPE) at the University of Washington’s health sciences schools. They are dedicated to furthering collaboration in the health sciences professions by organizing interprofessional activities between the School of Dentistry, the School of Medicine, the School of Nursing, the School of Pharmacy, the School of Public Health, and the School of Social Work.
Life Sciences Building: The Life Sciences Building is part of the larger Life Sciences Complex (LSC) which will revolutionize the conduct of biological research and enhance the student experience. The Life Sciences Complex is projected to be completed in 2018 and will include a 20,000 square foot Biology Greenhouse. When complete, the Life Sciences Complex project will occupy roughly the same footprint as the existing Botany Greenhouse, along the north side of the Burke-Gilman Trail.
