Leading the Nation in Pediatric Research Space

When the Research Foundation opened in 1931, Cincinnati Children’s became the first pediatric hospital in the country to have a building dedicated solely to research.

Today, we have one of the largest pediatric research facilities in the country, providing more than 1.4 million square feet of research laboratory space to our investigators.

Specifically designed to promote collaboration across disciplines, our research facilities connect more than 900 scientists and clinicians, enabling faster translation of innovations from the lab bench to the patient’s bedside.

Our first research tower opened in 2008 and features 415,000 square feet of modern basic and clinical research lab space.

The building is named after William Cooper Procter, chairman of the board of trustees in 1931, who made a $2.5 million gift to build and endow the Research Foundation.

Built in 2015, our 15-story Clinical Sciences Pavilion features 445,000 square feet of space for laboratories, an imaging center and supporting infrastructure.

Inside these walls, more than 600 pieces of artwork seek to inspire discovery among scientists who work in the facility.
