About FDA

Consolidation of Life Sciences-Biodefense Complex (LSBC) to White Oak (WO) Campus

Description: Coordinate with the General Services Administration (GSA) and FDA programs and manage project activities to relocate the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER), the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER), and the Center for Tobacco Products (CTP) to the LSBC at FDA's WO Campus in accordance with the 2009 Master Plan and schedule. The LSBC is comprised of two laboratories - Buildings 52 and 72; the expansion of the vivarium - Building 10, and two office buildings - Buildings 71 and 75. The LSBC is located on the Southeast Quadrant of the WO Campus with almost 1.2 million square feet of space to house more than 2,600 FDA employees - a large portion from CBER and CDER - who will relocate to WO from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other locations scattered throughout Rockville. The LSBC is intended to provide safe, certified laboratory capacity for FDA to perform its medical product responsibilities.
