CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - Gov. Chris Christie and other New Jersey officials have broken ground on a new health care research facility in Camden.

The Republican governor on Thursday said the Joint Health Sciences Center will create labs where students from nearby colleges and medical schools can collaborate on research and other projects.

The facility is scheduled to open in the spring of 2019 for students of Rutgers-Camden, Rowan University, the Cooper Medical School of Rowan University, the Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine and Camden County College.

Officials say the center is part of a revitalization of Camden and will develop a health sector research presence in the city.
