The Joint Health Sciences Center is an innovative facility that will provide unique education and training opportunities to a new generation of health care providers. The Center is designed to co-locate students from different academic disciplines to share laboratories, equipment and classrooms, exposing students to a broader educational experience and encouraging the connection of talents, goods and services. Rowan University, Rutgers-Camden, the Cooper Medical School of Rowan University, the Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine, Camden County College, and the Joint Board of Governors administrators will all have a presence in the facility. Approximately two-thirds of the space will be dedicated to research, multi-purpose rooms and offices focused on biomedical research.
The $50 million Joint Health Sciences Center is going to be integral to the “Eds and Meds” corridor in Downtown Camden, NJ. The Center’s objectives are to support: (1) initiatives that may lead to the development of products and bring those products to market; (2) attracting research-based businesses which in turn will help build the economy of South Jersey; and (3) developing solutions to problem sets that will identify pathways to improve population health programs.
