"This latest addition to our Emeryville portfolio is critical to our mission of providing more world-class facilities to support the urgent work being conducted by scientists here in the Bay Area and is a much needed strategic addition to the overall research cluster in the East Shore Innovation Corridor." The base building was designed by DGA Architects, one of California's leading firms specializing in the design of office and laboratory facilities for the advancement of the life and physical sciences.
