Construction starts on CSU research institute named for pioneer in orthopaedic medicine June 2

Colorado State University's newest research facility will become a reality Friday, June 2, when the university breaks ground for the C. Wayne McIlwraith Translational Medicine Institute.

The $65 million facility is named for a veterinarian who has built a remarkable clinical and research enterprise in orthopaedic medicine for horses during nearly 40 years at Colorado State University.

The ground breaking will be held at 1 p.m. next to CSU's Diagnostic Medicine Center, located north of the James L. Voss Veterinary Teaching Hospital, 300 W. Drake Road in Fort Collins, CO, 80526.
