In the winter of 2018, construction of the new 375,000 square foot, nine-story Children’s Research Institute at Children’s Mercy Hospital began at the downtown Adele Hall Campus. Two Kansas City iconic families – the Hall Family Foundation and the Suderland Foundation – joined to donate $150 million to kickstart this project. This is the largest one-time gift ever made to a children’s hospital for pediatric research and will draw top researchers from around the globe to combat some of the toughest medical challenges facing our children today.
Join us to hear from Tom Curran, PhD, FRS, Executive Director and Chief Scientific Officer of the Children’s Research Institute, a world-class facility where many of the best and brightest researchers are looking for answers to pediatric medicine’s most challenging questions. Tom Curran, PhD, FRS, Executive Director and Chief Scientific Officer, has gathered a team of internationally recognized scientists and researchers whose sole focus is to serve the needs of children, and their important work is underway.
The Children’s Research Institute is creating an integrated research environment where no boundaries exist between science and medicine. In our quest to find answers to pediatric medicine’s most challenging questions, we are collaborating with physicians, scientists, academic colleagues, philanthropic partners and others within our community, and around the world.

To accomplish our goals, we’re performing the highest quality research using the latest medical technologies. The hospital’s leadership in pediatric genomic medicine and clinical pharmacology is driving research and innovation in nephrology, heart care, cancer treatment and other subspecialties to provide answers for the most difficult cases and challenging pediatric conditions.

Integral to our efforts is our focus on applied informatics, the use of cutting-edge computational capabilities. Informatics helps us provide answers to children and their families by accelerating the process of research, improving the quality of research, making it possible to share data with other researchers, and even making new methods of research available.

Join us for this remarkable program to learn more about how we are changing the future of healthcare for children in our community and around the world.
