Research Expansion: Making “What Ifs” a Reality
- Next: What if curing cancer with immunotherapy is just the beginning?
- Next: What if we could edit genes to cure diseases like type 1 diabetes?
- Next: What if we could use social media to identify depression in teens?
- Next: What if we could find a cure whenever a child needed one?
For more than a decade, we at Seattle Children’s Research Institute have been asking ourselves “What if?” every day. And thanks to remarkable discoveries from dedicated researchers, hundreds of “What ifs” have become realities.
This year, we’re beginning construction on our new Building Cure research facility in downtown Seattle, the latest step in Seattle Children’s quest to revolutionize pediatric medicine and save the lives of more children. When the building opens in 2019, it will expand the Seattle Children’s Research Institute campus to over 1 million square feet of space and be home to a state-of-the-art cell-manufacturing facility. It will boost our ability to make scientific discoveries, develop new therapies and conduct clinical trials that bring therapies to children in areas like cancer, type 1 diabetes and sickle cell disease.
There are many ways you can get involved with and learn more about Seattle Children’s Research Institute as we continue working every day to find the answers that are changing the world.
