The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention held a ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday for its new building in Atlanta.
Building 23 completes the replacement of outdated CDC biological laboratories, officials said.
The 16-story building will enhance CDC’s research on malaria, parasitic diseases, salmonella, E. coli, and support AIDS research.
The $365 million building has space for 472 laboratory and lab support staff.
The building was built by the Atlanta-based Turner Construction Company.
