The Botnar Building, which houses IMRIC - the Institute of Medical Research Israel Canada, is a unique facility of laboratories designed for current standards of microbiology research.  In addition, the building provides auditorium spaces and seminar classrooms for the Hebrew University School of Medicine.

The building itself is laid out in an L shape configuration, thus creating a campus plaza with two auditoriums at the end of the main pedestrian axis of the Hadassah Campus. The enclosed arena which is formed by the building and the adjacent Students’ Center, helps to create an intimate campus atmosphere for the entire School of Medicine.
