MoveAbove: Dr. John Kennedy and Dr. Seth Landefeld  

This week, the Department of Medicine Chair's Office moved to the 12th floor of the Faculty Office Tower as its new home base. This is just one of 25 DOM space improvement projects precipitated by construction of the new Altec/Styslinger Genomic Medicine and Data Sciences building which will also house the Marnix E. Heersink Institute for Biomedical Innovation Conference Center. Of our 11 divisions, 10 have been involved in renovations and relocations in the past 18 months. Here's to everyone who has packed their offices, labs and clinics into boxes and bravely traded spaces! The hard work will ultimately lead us to workspace that makes us all proud.
