Scientists have been very "patient" waiting for NYU Langone's new science center to open.
Eight hundred biomedical experts will use the space to study everything from cardiology to neuroscience.
The building is energy efficient and meant to be sustainable on natural resources. But what's happening inside is what really matters.
"Most people think scientists are like in the dark by themselves, but to really get a project going, you need to collaborate, share ideas, share protocols, share resources. So this space is meant for all of that."
That collaboration starts as soon as visitors enter the lobby. There is a large screen displaying all of the research taking place.
The building is a part of a $6 billion campus transformation.
