Silverman Hall

The Richard and Barbara Silverman Hall for Molecular Therapeutics and Diagnostics opened in 2010. Located just south of the Pancoe-Evanston Northwestern Healthcare Life Sciences Pavilion and Patrick G. and Shirley W. Ryan Hall, the building houses 16 research groups and about 245 faculty, staff and research assistants in chemistry, biology and engineering. Each of the five floors has state-of-the-art research laboratories and a variety of meeting rooms encourage interaction among research groups.

Silverman Hall also houses:

  • The Center for Advanced Molecular Imagery (CAMI)
  • The Proteomics Center of Excellence
  • The Center for Molecular Innovation and Drug Discovery
  • Nanoscale Integrated Fabrication, Testing and Instrumentation (NIFTI)
  • Computational bioinformatics facilities.

Construction was funded in part through Richard and Barbara Silverman's generous donation of a portion of royalties obtained from sales of the blockbuster drug for Lyrica, which Professor Richard Silverman developed as an innovative therapy for neuropathic diseases.
