In March 2016, the groundbreaking ceremony for the first new research building marked the start of the development of the site as a university medical campus. The completion of the first new research building, the Quincke Research Centre, was in autumn 2019. The five-storey new building has 4,100 square metres of usable space. Thanks to modular structures, the laboratory and office spaces can be adapted to changing research projects and changing needs without much effort, so that scientists can use the research building flexibly. Facing Feldstraße, the façade is designed with a large window area. A BNB certification in silver is being sought for the first new research building (sustainable building according to the BNB rating system).
