FAU Scripps Research Facility

Owner : FAU Board of Trustees

Location : Jupiter, Florida

This 41,000 sq.ft. building served as a temporary headquarters of the Scripps Research Institute's Florida operation until Scripps' permanent home was complete. The two story building contains a multi-million dollar robotic-screening-technology lab in which robots perform repetitive tests at a speed hundreds of times faster than hum could ever complete them. There are also additional labs for chemistry and biology. These labs are highly restricted to prevent the spread of live viruses.
