Irving Cancer Research Center

This 120,000-square-foot, nine-story building on St. Nicholas Avenue between 166th and 167th Streets at Columbia University Medical Center is dedicated entirely to cancer research. It houses investigators conducting disease-specific research of many cancers, including brain, breast, gastric, pancreatic, prostate, lymphoma, and tumor immunology. When the building was completed in spring 2005, it doubled Columbia’s available laboratory space for cancer research and expanded Columbia’s growing genetics program. The only cancer research facility built in New York City in the last fifteen years, the Irving Center holds seven floors of laboratories and the Avon Foundation Breast Imaging Center for medically underserved women.

The new building was designed by local architect Davis Brody Bond, whose main partner Max Bond is a former professor of Columbia’s Graduate School of Architecture.
