SCRB 3 is an imaging research and translational patient-care facility for UT M. D. Anderson on a 3.8-acre site in the UT Research Park near the Texas Medical Center. This facility was a collaboration among several vested interest groups, including UT M. D. Anderson, UT Health Science Center-Houston and General Electric. This six-story facility houses everything needed for researchers from equipment invention to initial discovery through evaluation in the patient population under one roof. SCRB 3 focuses on developing, refining and applying imaging techniques for the nation’s top two leading causes of death: cancer and heart disease. The project also includes a cyclotron, vivarium, clinical treatment areas, and biomedical research laboratories.
