Marsico Hall is an 11-story, state-of-the-art imaging and research facility. Located within the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the facility brings together UNC’s School of Medicine and the Eschelman School of Pharmacy. Housing five major medical disciplines once spread across campus, the facility provides endless opportunities in scientific discovery under one roof. The pioneers in medicine working within its walls have access to world-class imaging equipment making it one of the most powerful imaging centers in the world.

The facility fundamentally advances the research and treatment of cancer, HIV, and other complex diseases with direct impact to both the health and economy of North Carolinians and immeasurable significance in the world of medicine. Marsico Hall has the flexibility to house the imaging technology of today and the yet-to-be developed research technology of the future.

Marsico Hall houses an extensive array of medical equipment that includes a hybrid MRI/PET whole body scanner, a 7 Tesla MRI whole body scanner, and a cyclotron – a particle accelerator used to create the isotopes researchers and clinicians use in their cutting-edge imaging techniques. The imaging equipment alone takes up three of the building’s nine total floors. Marsico Hall has seven occupied floors above ground and two below, with approximately 25,000-SF of usable space on each floor.

Registered with the U.S. Green Building Council and constructed with a certification goal of LEED Silver, Marsico Hall’s design features have a substantial impact on the campus and community.
