We believe breakthroughs happen when the walls between research and medicine are eliminated, allowing researchers and physicians to work side by side. This commitment is leading to new ways to treat, diagnose and even prevent complex childhood diseases. Each day, we’re bringing innovations from bench to bedside and beyond to improve outcomes for children here and around the world.
Children's Research Institute at Children's Mercy Kansas City
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. Our research programs focus on areas such as genomics, clinical pharmacology, immunotherapy and health outcomes.
The research building, home to the CRI, is currently under construction and has been carefully designed so research and clinical care come together. It is a new way of working together, not in the silos of closed labs or division based on specialties, but in cross-functional teams aligned together to benefit children.
