Research Institute

Seattle Children’s Research Institute

As one of the nation's top five pediatric research centers, Seattle Children's Research Institute is dedicated to providing hope, care and cures to help every child live the healthiest and most fulfilling life possible.

Our investigators have pioneered groundbreaking cystic fibrosis treatments and cutting-edge cancer therapies that help a child's immune system defeat cancer, and made other major contributions to pediatric medicine.

Collaborating With World-Renowned Partners

Researchers in the centers work in close collaboration with one another, their colleagues at partner institutions including the University of Washington and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center and our healthcare providers at Seattle Children's Hospital, one of U.S. News & World Report’s top children's hospitals. This collaboration is one of our key strengths, allowing our faculty to draw on a variety of disciplines and techniques as they pursue solutions to some of medicine's most complex problems.

Turning Discoveries Into Lifesaving Therapies

We understand that finding a potential cure in a lab isn't enough. With one million square feet of clinical, laboratory and office space, a workforce of over 2,400 people and over $253 million in total extramural funding for the 2023 fiscal year, we are working toward the next wave of lifesaving discoveries.

Seattle Children’s Research Institute: Building Cure houses a multimillion-dollar cell processing facility that places us among the few pediatric facilities that meet strict FDA requirements for manufacturing therapies.
