Science Research Park (SRP)

UC San Diego Real Estate Department Project

The 30-acre Science Research Park on UC San Diego’s east campus creates a vibrant environment for corporate and academic partnerships to advance the university’s research objectives, commercialization and provide students with real-world challenges and experiences that prepare them to contribute to the future workforce. Current tenants within the Science Research Park include the 145,000 square foot La Jolla Institute for Immunology (operational since 2006) and the 137,000 square foot Center for Novel Therapeutics (operational since 2019).  

 Through a public-private partnership, Wexford Science & Technology will develop the remaining 14 undeveloped acres within the 30-acre Science Research Park, providing new life science and technology research space. The master plan and building design will be advanced and reviewed through a series of iterative design workshops with campus stakeholders and the design review board, then presented with associated environmental compliance to the UC Regents for approval at a future date, anticipated to fall within the third quarter of 2023.

 UC San Diego is a global research and academic medical powerhouse, and also among the top universities in the nation for startup creation. The goal is for Science Research Park to become the epicenter of research development and commercialization in southern California, attracting new thinking, new partners and new ideas to the region.
