The University of Arizona, Northern Arizona University and Arizona State University are part of the Phoenix Biomedical Campus (PBC), a city initiative bringing bioresearch and education to downtown. The State of Arizona and City of Phoenix, as well as other vital community partners, continue to be strong supporters of the campus, intent on developing the Phoenix Biomedical Campus as a major biosciences hub and premier academic health center. The campus also serves as a major economic engine: At full build-out the Phoenix Biomedical Campus is anticipated to generate an economic impact of $2.1 billion annually.
The heart of the developing Phoenix Biomedical Campus, HSEB has amassed a dozen awards from a variety of organizations that recognize the significant architectural design aspects of this facility, including the prestigious American Institute of Architects (AIA). The Campus Management & Operations team, earned two (TOBY Awards in 2017) BOMA’s The Outstanding Building of the year award in the Historic Building and Public Assembly (HSEB) category.

HSEB and future research buildings are connected by a north-south structure that houses public functions and spaces for the occupants of these facilities as part of an effort to ensure that educators, researchers, students, and teachers meet and encourage an interdisciplinary approach to teaching and research.
