National Biocontainment Training Center

National Training, Simulation and Quarantine Center (TSQC)

The result of a nearly $20 million grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), the TSQC encompasses an entire floor of the new $119 million Dr. Edwin G. & Dorothy Balbach Davis Global Center on UNMC’s Omaha campus.

State-of-the-art facilities include the 20-bed National Quarantine Unit, the nation's only federal quarantine unit, and a six-bed simulated biocontainment unit for advanced experiential training – the National Biocontainment Training Center. This high-fidelity simulation center includes a mock lab and autoclave. Within the Davis Global Center building, TSQC is in close proximity with several high-tech advanced interprofessional simulation and learning environments.
