A new era of scientific advancement is emerging at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN, with the development of a $412-million advanced research center. Designed as an interactive hub of exploration and discovery, the more than 625,000-square-foot center will cultivate transformative research and collaboration and attract scientists and clinicians to St. Jude.
“The advanced research center will bring together a powerful combination of talent and technology in a space designed to propel discovery,” said James R. Downing, M.D., St. Jude president and chief executive officer. “We are creating an environment where scientists and clinicians will have ready access to leading-edge resources and opportunities to pursue breakthroughs in hopes of accelerating progress in treating and curing catastrophic pediatric diseases.”
Slated to break ground in spring 2018 and open in 2021, the facility is a major component of a $1-billion capital expansion of the St. Jude campus.
