Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital Research and Education Building

The site where innovation, collaboration and care will unite to impact our children’s future. 

The Johns Hopkins All Children’s Research and Education Building is home to our institutes, grant-funded scientists, innovative graduate medical education programs, cutting-edge Center for Medical Simulation and Innovative Education, and Florida’s only accredited pediatric biorepository.

The $95 million, 230,000-square-foot building opened in 2018 and is designed to promote collaboration with “forum stairs” to encourage sitting and chatting, white board walls for making notes and The Library restaurant for informal meetings over coffee or meals.

One side of the building is dedicated offices and the collaborative spaces, including those devoted to the research and academic offices of the hospital’s six institutes: 

  • Heart Institute
  • Cancer & Blood Disorders Institute
  • Institute for Brain Protection Sciences
  • Institute for Clinical and Translational Research
  • Institute for Fundamental Biomedical Research
  • Maternal, Fetal & Neonatal Institute

The other side of the building has flexible lab space that can be allocated according to changing priorities and an expanded biorepository, which stores blood and tissue samples at sub-zero temperatures for use in future research.

The building serves as an educational center for pediatric resident physicians and fellows in the Johns Hopkins All Children's-sponsored graduate medical education programs. The Center for Medical Simulation and Innovative Education is a state-of-the-art program to train clinicians, patient families and community members.

The new building will house laboratories for bench and translational research along with shared support areas and research cores to promote collaboration. It will be home to expanded facilities for Johns Hopkins All Children’s nationally accredited pediatric biorepository and a new state-of-the-art biomarker discovery center. Both programs will support pediatric precision medicine initiatives to develop new evidence-based therapies targeted to specific diseases and groups of patients.

Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital is home to more than 350 research studies, including landmark iPICS and PREDICT studies aimed at new understanding of chronic and acute health conditions to develop tailored treatment approaches.

The land for the facility was donated by the state of Florida to the University of South Florida and then transferred in 2014 as a gift to Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital to enhance both organizations’ efforts to support pediatric research.
