Higuchi Biomedical Research Area
The west campus complex is named for Takeru Higuchi, Regents Distinguished Professor of Chemistry and Pharmacy 1967-87, who oversaw the area’s growth. Its centerpiece is the Higuchi Biosciences Center, a “center without walls” that conducts interdisciplinary research in bioanalytical chemistry, drug delivery, neurobiology, immunology, drug discovery and combinatorial chemistry. It is a KU Center for Research Designated Research Center, which oversees grants management and research administration; and a Kansas Technology Enterprise Corp. Center of Excellence, which oversees technology-based economic development and applied research.
The buildings at the research area include the Dolph Simons Sr. Biosciences Research Laboratories, McCollum Laboratories, the Pharmaceutical Chemistry Laboratories and Smissman Research Laboratories.
