A sculpture was unveiled last week in honor of Dr. Roscoe R. “Ike” Robinson and his wife Ann on the building named in their honor.

Artist Karen Heyl was present at a reception to debut the sculpture entitled “Cellular Micrograph.”

Robinson became Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs in 1981, launching a building boom on Vanderbilt’s campus: The Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Hospital in 1985; The Vanderbilt Clinic in 1988; Medical Research Building I (now named the Ann and Roscoe Robinson Medical Research Building) in 1989; the Kim Dayani Human Performance Center in 1989; Stallworth Rehabilitation Hospital in 1992; Medical Research Building II (now the Frances Williams Preston Building) in 1993; and the Annette and Irwin Eskind Biomedical Library in 1994.
