The Medical University of South Carolina Drug Discovery Building and Bioengineering Building are comprised of research and teaching facilities for multiple departments. Linked at two levels, the six-story Drug Discovery Building and the four-story Bioengineering Building will function as a unified research complex for pharmacology, pharmaceutical sciences, tissue regeneration, bioengineering and cancer genomics, and computational biomolecular modeling and simulation.

The buildings were constructed to house 36 principal investigators in flexible research laboratories and support areas. Specialized spaces include an animal imaging center (CT, PET, MRI, optical imaging), a nuclear magnetic resonance suite for three 800-MHz magnets, wet and dry laboratories, a 300-seat auditorium, a pharmacy teaching laboratory, and a microfabrication shop. Also included are a 150-seat lecture hall, a 75-seat classroom, and conference spaces with full power and data services.
