Ground broken for research building in Memphis

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Chancellor Steve J. Schwab of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis says a new campus building signals a commitment to research.

Officials have broken ground for a translational science research building on the main campus in Memphis.

More than 40 investigators will work in the building on advances in heart and blood vessel disease. It is projected to open in fall 2013.

UT President Joe DiPietro said no place is more important than the Health Science Center in keeping Tennessee healthy.
