    From this angle, the original and expanded areas of the CDC campus can be seen. The original six buildings that housed offices, laboratories, an audiovisual department, a small auditorium, and cafeteria are no longer standing. The last of these was demolished in 2011.

    CDC marked its 50th anniversary in 1996 with offices in Hyattsville, MD, Research Triangle Park, NC, Cincinnati, OH, Morgantown WV, Spokane, WA, Pittsburgh, PA, San Juan, Puerto, Rico and Fort Collins, CO as well as quarantine offices throughout the country.

    By the late 1990s, Congress approved a plan to construct world-class facilities for cutting-edge science research and approved the purchase of additional land along Clifton Road to the west. This acquisition increased the size of the Atlanta campus to about 47 acres. The campus also acquired a new name: the Edward R. Roybal campus, in honor of the California congressman who was one of CDC’s most influential supporters. All of the original campus buildings were located between Houston Mill Road and Clifton Way, which is to the right. After the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the U.S. and the anthrax attacks that followed, CDC modified its construction plans to strengthen security measures addressing bio-terrorism threats.

    The expanded Roybal campus opened in 2005 with the completion of a new headquarters building, new laboratories, and the Global Communications Center. The newer facilities reflect the needs of a highly technical and scientific agency tasked with tackling health security challenges of today and tomorrow.
