Amid uncertainty around the future flow of federal research dollars, Northeastern University celebrated the grand opening of its new Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Complex on Monday, pointing to the $225 million facility as evidence of the school’s growing ambition and its commitment to scientific advances in Massachusetts.
“This complex is a statement that this city, this state, thrive because of discovery, because of research, because of learning,” Northeastern President Joseph Aoun said.
U.S. Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Ed Markey, U.S. Rep. Joseph Kennedy III and Boston Mayor Martin Walsh joined Aoun to officially recognize the Columbus Avenue complex, which opened its doors to students and faculty at the beginning of this semester.
