The Carter-Harrison Research Building (MR-6) provides additional research space necessary for the University to maintain a leadership role in biomedical research. Designed by the Alexandria, Virginia office of HDR Architecture, Inc., the project consists of a five story, 170,000 gsf main building with an attached one story, 28,000 gsf underground annex.

This new research facility matches the existing architecture and finishes of the adjacent Medical Research Building No. 5. The main building is connected to the existing MR-5 building with pedestrian traffic between the two buildings on all floors except for the basement level.

The facility provides research space for Cancer, Immunology, and Infectious Diseases. The main building consists of BioSafety Level Two (BSL2) laboratories on all five floors, generic laboratories, administrative office space, and conference rooms. The MEP systems for the main building are contained primarily on the mezzanine and penthouse floors located above the five research levels.

The adjacent 28,000 gsf underground space is attached to the main building at the basement level only and houses a vivarium along with Biosafety Level Three (BSL3) laboratories. This isolated section of the building includes a dedicated mechanical room, including fully redundant HVAC and electrical systems.
