Seattle Children's Research Institute

Read about the inspiring environment Seattle Children's has created to power our research enterprise.

In October 2006, Children’s acquired two research buildings totaling nearly 500,000 square feet.

The adjacent buildings are located in downtown Seattle, close to our current research partners, the University of Washington and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, and other biotechnology centers. The physicians and scientists that staff Seattle Children’s Research Institute are faculty members at the University of Washington.

The Jack R. MacDonald Building encompasses 216,088 square feet on 11 floors, four of which are outfitted for bench laboratory research. The 1915 Terry Avenue building provides 251,095 square feet on seven floors.

Over the course of the next several years, the research institute will create nine research centers in these buildings.

The facilities will have an initial staff of approximately 250, and ultimately, interdisciplinary teams totaling approximately 500 researchers will collaborate here, conducting bench research and clinical trials.

The 1900 Ninth Avenue facility includes a state-of-the-art barrier vivarium as well as core laboratories for flow cytometry.
