Yerkes National Primate Research Center Dual-Function Facility

The three story Dual Function Facility includes the Emory Institute for Drug Discovery and the Center for Innovative Genetics. Researchers in the facility specialize in addressing previously unmet needs regarding infectious diseases and issues relating to transplant surgeries. The facility houses animal research facilities including ABSL-3 animal holding rooms, animal treatment and housing rooms, transplant operating rooms, laboratories, interstitial space for mechanical and electrical equipment and distribution, a tissue digester and a necropsy room. The facility has a dedicated boiler and chiller plant and is designed to NIH DRM standards. The building has N+1 redundancy for air handling equipment for backup in case of an equipment failure, which also provides energy savings during normal operation.
