BRF (formerly the Biomedical Research Foundation) has received a $10,000 gift from the Committee of One Hundred in support of the construction of BRF’s new Center for Molecular Imaging and Therapy (CMIT). BRF and the BRF Board of Directors have committed $14.7 million to the $19.5 million project, and BRF has raised $2.4 of its $4.8 million fundraising goal.
The new CMIT, which has broken ground at the corner of Kings Highway and Mansfield Road, will house radiopharmaceutical production equipment and operations, patient imaging services, and a clinical and translational research program. The building is slated to open in 2021.
