George L. Hanbury II, Ph.D.On behalf of the Nova Southeastern University (NSU) Board of Trustees, I am proud to begin construction on the Center for Collaborative Research (CCR) as part of our 50th anniversary celebration. This initiative is a major component of NSU’s Vision 2020, our plan to ensure that NSU is recognized as a premier, private, not-for-profit university of quality and distinction.

Due to the hard work and dedication of so many people throughout NSU and beyond, Broward County will soon have a focal point for research and discoveries that could one day impact all of humanity.

NSU’s new IBM supercomputer, which will be located inside the CCR, is nicknamed “Megalodon,” which was the biggest prehistoric shark that ever lived. It allows NSU to join an elite group of universities with this type of research computing power. This machine will help our researchers process massive amounts of data and convert it into valuable and actionable information.

Through the supercomputer, one of Florida’s largest wet labs, and other high-tech equipment, the CCR will provide our world-class team of researchers with the tools they need to continue to make discoveries that will impact the way we all live. From developing new cancer treatments to finding new methods for environmental sustainability, the possibilities are endless.

This is an exciting time for NSU and the CCR is a major milestone in our university’s rich and expanding history.
