A new Medical Education Building for the Wake Forest School of Medicine in Innovation Quarter has just been announced.

We have launched a $50 million philanthropic capital campaign to fund the transformation of a former R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company building into an optimal learning environment.

The building is adjacent to 525@vine, which houses our Physician Assistant Studies, and Division of Public Health Sciences, and near Wake Forest Biotech Place, our modern research facility.
