Why Feinberg?

A New Home for Research

Northwestern University has made an extraordinary commitment to growing our biomedical research enterprise. In 2019, the opening of the Louis A. Simpson and Kimberly K. Querrey Biomedical Research Center added 629,000 square feet of new space dedicated to scientific inquiry into cancer, heart disease, neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer's, diabetes and other areas where we need more knowledge and answers to inform medical treatment.
