Cleveland Clinic, in collaboration with FRDC and more than twenty biomedical and academic institutions received a grant from the State of Ohio’s Third Frontier Project to develop the Global Cardiovascular Innovation Center (GCIC). The Project is being developed in collaboration with the Cleveland Clinic Innovation Center (CCIC) who will serve as a primary tenant for the facility and whose own research and research with other partners will provide the spin-off start-up companies that will become tenants in the GCIC.
Work performed within the new freestanding 50,000 square foot GCIC will be dedicated to the research, development, and commercialization of multiple platforms of emerging technologies for cardiovascular intervention products. It will build upon Cleveland Clinic’s unrivaled cardiovascular expertise, its multi-disciplinary approach to understanding the underlying factors associated with heart disease, and the Clinic’s overall history of innovation.
This world class facility will be located across from the Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute, and the Center will provide space for incubator and accelerator tenants that need facilities for laboratory and/or production activities as well as low-cost office space with flexible terms. The building will offer shared facilities such as conference rooms, a learning center, video conferencing, resource center, and a common lab facility. Additionally, the facility will feature 20 wet/dry labs and an administrative office suite with both private offices and workstations. The GCIC will also include state of the art information technology, networking, and infrastructure.
The goal for this project is LEED Silver Certification.
