Penn biomedical scientists move into new uCity complex with 115,000 square feet of lab space

A group of Penn scientists and engineers is moving into 115,000 square feet of new lab space in the 13-story One uCity Square building in West Philadelphia. The group plans to consolidate research on messenger RNA, nanoparticles, and other cutting-edge biomedical technology.

Over 50 scientists and staff will be spread out over four floors, including Drew Weissman, MD, PhD, Roberts Family Professor in Vaccine Research and co-inventor of the mRNA technology that led to the development of the covid-19 vaccines, who will oversee Penn’s Institute for RNA Innovation in the new building.
