The School of Veterinary Medicine received an $18 million matching grant from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for a planned teaching-and-research building adjacent to its current facility in West Philadelphia. The 100,000-square-foot building will house two new lecture halls, laboratory modules, an expanded new library, a student-computer area and a student lounge. It is expected to cost $43 million.
  “The facilities will enable the school to attract and retain the new generation of research and clinical scientists who will train the veterinarians for the new century,” said Dr. Alan M. Kelly, the Gilbert S. Kahn Dean of Veterinary Medicine. “We now have a lot of work to do to raise the balance so this building can become a reality quickly.”
