New Building Opens Door to Discovery

The Johns Hopkins All Children’s Research and Education Building opened during a ribbon cutting ceremony on the main campus Sept. 20 in St. Petersburg. The $95 million, 225,000-square-foot building houses the hospital’s institutes, its graduate medical education and simulation programs, an expanded biorepository and a new team of fundamental scientists who will seek to understand the origins of diseases and how to prevent them. The basic scientists are members of or have affiliations with the hospital’s new Institute for Fundamental Biomedical Research.

The hospital’s research program anchors multicenter clinical and translational studies such as KIDS-DOTT, which focuses on thrombosis, and Prospective Research on Early Determinants of Illness and Children's health Trajectories (PREDICT). With the new building, Johns Hopkins All Children’s expects to become involved in more clinical studies and at earlier phases.

Grand Rounds and other Continuing Medical Education opportunities soon will be hosted in the building’s 250-person auditorium. The Peabody restaurant, operated by the owners of Tampa’s Oxford Exchange and open seven days a week to the public, is on the ground floor of the building and is intended to promote informal exchanges of ideas.

Directory of Physicians & Services Now Available Online
The 2018 Directory of Physicians & Services is available online at HopkinsAllChildrens.org/outpatientcare to view or download.
