Chicago Sun-Times, July 29, 2008
Doctors, scientists, physicists, and researchers will soon see technologically advanced workspaces in two new buildings taking shape at the University of Chicago. The latest advances in the university's renewal efforts are a $375 million Center for Physical and Computational Sciences, and a $700 million New Hospital Pavilion for the University Medical Center. The pavilion will house the latest technology, such as robotic-assisted surgeries, and allow for futuristic technology yet to be created, executives say.
