The Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine has formed a partnership with a cancer research laboratory through its campus in Spartanburg, S.C.
The newly renovated 7,500-square-foot laboratory is located at the Gibbs Cancer Center & Research Institute, an entity of the Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System.
With an open-floor design to facilitate shared resources, the laboratory offers “significant opportunities for continuing medical education and research” at VCOM’s Carolinas campus, the Blacksburg school said in an announcement.
The facility, which cost $2 million, is a shared investment between Spartanburg Regional and VCOM.
“We are excited to move forward in this new partnership, working with Spartanburg Regional and the Gibbs Cancer Center and Research Institute to conduct research and promote health for humankind,” Dr. Timothy Kowalski, vice dean of the Carolinas campus, said in the announcement.
Opened in 2011, VCOM’s Spartanburg location has about 320 students.
