NORTH LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- Utah State University is set to break ground on a $60 million building officials hope will bring top scientists to the school.

The building is the first of two approved by the state Legislature for USU's Innovation Campus. The 110,000-square-foot, three-story building will house researchers participating in the Utah Science, Technology and Research Initiative.

It also will be home to USU's Center for Advanced Nutrition, which studies the link between nutrition and conditions like obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and its Cache County Study on Memory, Health and Aging.

The building will take two years to complete. A similar facility is planned for the University of Utah.
