Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital Research & Education Facility

Care, Research and Education Coalesce to Improve Patient Outcomes

The new research facility at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital will allow expansion and creation of a home for clinical research efforts of The Johns Hopkins Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) consortium to improve the way biomedical research impacts patient outcomes. The facility will expand bench laboratory research and cores with a focus on translational neurosciences, cancer, cardiology and neo-natal research. Medical education, including graduate medical education and nursing programs, will be combined in the building along with advanced simulation facilities supporting team-based education, clinical care and research activities.

The building will become the “town center” for academic activities on the All Children’s campus. Some of the features of the new research facility supporting this goal include:

  • Collaborative workspaces will house clinicians, researchers, educators and their teams.
  • A collaborative core will run horizontally and vertically to create an environment that reduces the separation found in most facilities of this type.
  • Specialized cores will create connectivity with the Johns Hopkins Medicine campuses in Baltimore. A robotic bio-repository facility is included to support research and clinical care.
  • The top floor will house a vivarium facility centered on flexible, adaptable designs that can support a wide variety of research programs, animal models and procedures.
