Clark Hall

Building Description:

Clark Hall, featuring state-of-the-art classrooms and high-tech, large laboratory facilities, is a relatively new building which houses the Biomedical Engineering department. In fact, the construction of Clark Hall was the initial step in the foundation of the Whitaker Biomedical Engineering Institute at Johns Hopkins University. Named for A. James Clark, chariman and chief executive officer of Clark Enterprises and a university trustee emeritus, the building was significantly funded and supported by Clark, whose construction company served as the general contractor for the project, in addition to being supported by a leadership award from the Whitaker Foundation and a capital grant from the state of Maryland. Within the halls of Clark Hall, biomedical engineering research, ranging from tissue engineering to computer modeling of human organs, takes place in the numerous laboratories and computer workstations.
