Peter Kuhn (left) and James Hicks (right) have devised a way to test for cancer cells in the blood through what they have dubbed “a liquid biopsy.” In addition to being less costly and uncomfortable for patients, the method may also be more sensitive and effective at identifying circulating tumor cells than any of their existing competitors.

Led by The Bridge@ USC Director Raymond Stevens (left), USC has joined with academic and industry leaders across the Pacific Rim to create a nonprofit organization that will generate high-resolution images of G protein coupled receptors (GPCRs). Professors Vadim Cherezov (center) and Vsevolod “Seva” Katritch (right) will be among those contributing their expertise to help the consortium define the structures of at least 200 GPCRs. This will allow scientists to design pharmaceuticals that more effectively target diabetes, cancer, and mental disorders. (Credit: Ryan Young)

Projects Facts • Largo Concrete, Inc.

Largo recently completed the 225,000gsf Michelson Center for Convergent BioScience at the University of Southern California (USC). The facility will be home to principal investigators leading an interdisciplinary team of researchers from the Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences with the Viterbi School of Engineering. The building features 1 basement level and 4 levels above grade and will house some high-tech medical equipment including a nano-fabrication facility and an electron microscope. The exterior of the building features two story tall concrete arches at both entrances and exposed, Board-Form architectural concrete finish on the interior face of the perimeter walls. Designed by HOK with John A. Martin & Associates as the structural engineer, Largo worked with general contractor DPR Construction to deliver this project on-time and under budget.

    Project Facts:

  • Location: Los Angeles, CA
  • Market Sector: Education
  • Levels: 1-level below grade, 4-levels above
  • Gross Sq. Ft. 224,682gsf
  • Complete: November 2016
  • Client: DPR Construction
  • Architect: HOK
  • Engineer: John A. Martin & Associates
