U.Va. Breaks Ground for New Medical Research Building
U.Va. President John T. Casteen III was one of many who participated in the Sept. 16 groundbreaking for a new medical science building. Devoted to research on infectious diseases, immunology, vaccine therapy, cancer and other areas of biomedicine, the $70.7 million, 102,000-square-foot facility will be named the Carter-Harrison Research Building to honor two families who have provided generous support for the project. “By enabling us to expand our programs in science and biomedicine, the Carter-Harrison Research Building will address one of the University’s highest priorities,” Casteen said.

Abdulaziz Sachedina, Ball Professor of Islamic Studies at U.Va. and a visiting fellow at Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, Iran, discussed the meaning of the Iranian elections during a lecture on Sept. 1 in the Rotunda Dome Room.
