Philadelphia, PA 19104
The Leonard and Madlyn Abramson Pediatric Research Center heralded a new era of accomplishment for Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the Research Institute. It houses nine floors of laboratories for basic research and a conference center where investigators gather to share findings. Safety and space considerations led the design of the structure, an innovative approach that earned the Boston Society of Architects/AIA and the New England Healthcare Assembly Honor Award for Laboratory Design.
Core facilities enable researchers’ access to sophisticated resources, such as gene sequencing, protein identification, microscopy, and nuclear magnetic resonance imaging.
The Leonard and Madlyn Abramson Pediatric Research Center is within easy walking distance of CHOP’s University City locations and adjacent to the University of Pennsylvania campus, allowing for interchange, collaboration, and shared facilities.
