Children’s Hospital and Regional Medical Center is undertaking a significant expansion of its research capabilities – in its quest to eliminate pediatric disease.
According to Children’s new president and CEO Dr. Tom Hansen, Children’s already has some of the nation’s top medical researchers, as he outlined in his special report to the Times.
He plans to build their program in partnership with Seattle’s other world-class research institutions, particularly the University of Washington and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
In addition, Children’s will soon announce a phased program to acquire as much as 1 million square feet of additional research space outside the main Seattle campus. They already have two new facilities dedicated to basic science and clinical research.
