TGen, International Genomics Consortium to Officially Open Phoenix Headquarters on Tuesday

NEW YORK, March 18 (GenomeWeb News) - The Translational Genomics Research Institute and the International Genomics Consortium will officially open their new headquarters in downtown Phoenix on March 22, the institutions said yesterday.

 

The 170,000-square-foot glass-walled facility is the first building in the planned Phoenix Bioscience Center.

 

In December, TGen and the International Genomics Consortium, a non-profit research organization, moved into the $46 million six-story building across the street from their temporary offices, 18 months after ground was broken for the new building.
