SPOKANE, Wash. – The new building under construction on the Washington State University campus in Spokane has been named the Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Sciences building to reflect that it will be home to the College of Pharmacy and the Medical Sciences program.

“Although the building will house educational programs for both medicine and pharmacy, its primary value is as a research facility,” said Gary M. Pollack, dean of the College of Pharmacy. “The phrase ‘pharmaceutical and biomedical sciences’ best describes the nature of the work that will be conducted in this new building.”
University fundraisers are continuing to search for a major donor interested in having the building named after himself or herself.
