The Cottrell Surgical Innovation Suite Set to Open in October
Be a Part of History Going Forward
The Cottrell Innovation Suite will continue the VCU Department of Surgery’s long-standing tradition of excellence in research, innovation, surgical education, and surgical testing.
The location is Sanger Hall, 1101 East Marshall Street, 9th floor, the same location where Drs. Lower and Hume made history 50 years ago.
This project is being funded by philanthropic dollars, and a gift of $10,000 which can be paid over five years will include you in this history and put your name on the donor wall.
