Children’s Expands Research Facilities

Children’s Research Institute (CRI) has expanded to increase research space atop the main Children’s National building. This expansion allows researchers to better serve families with world-class bench to bedside care. The Centers for Neuroscience Research and Clinical and Community Research are now housed on this new floor, allowing the Centers for Cancer and Immunology Research and Genetic Medicine Research to expand their operations on the existing research floor. This expansion adds 20,000 square feet of research offices, conference rooms, and laboratories, bringing the total research space of CRI to100,000 square feet.

The new research space features:
  • Live video cell imaging
  • Multiple onsite cell culture labs
  • Three-dimensional cell recreation technology based on microscope imaging
The new floor allows researchers from every center to work side-by-side, opening doors for greater collaborations with clinicians, taking research from bench to the bedside and out into the community.
