The Core

The PBC is a 30-acre, urban life sciences hub and is the heart of the innovator’s district in downtown Phoenix. It is home to the highest concentration of research and physician scientists along with complementary research and health professionals in the region. On and within 2 miles of the PBC, innovators have access to unprecedented collaborations with more than 20 Institutes of Research Excellence to accelerate their discoveries. 

The PBC is master-planned for six million square feet of education, research, clinical and innovation space. Approximately two million square feet has been constructed, so there is room to grow. You are invited to join the drivers of translational discovery on the Phoenix Bioscience Core!
