Research building marks the first completed phase of the new Children's Hospital campus

PITTSBURGH, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC officially opened its new 10-story, state-of-the-art John G. Rangos Sr. Research Center today marking the first completed phase of its new premier pediatric campus.

With more than 300,000 square feet of space, the new center will serve as the hub of pediatric health research for the region. The center - double the size of the current location - will enhance the hospital's ability to recruit top researchers from around the world.

Research is fundamental to Children's Hospital's mission, one that ties clinical care to both research and education.

The new facility will support biomedical research, including pediatric cancer, diabetes, heart disease, liver failure, childhood infection and inflammatory diseases, genomics, immunology and neuroscience, among other fields. The new flexible lab space can accommodate 70 principal investigators.

"The flexible open lab design facilitates the kind of collaborative interaction between investigators and laboratory groups that is necessary for major research advances in the 21st century. It also permits sharing of equipment to drive down the cost of research," said David H. Perlmutter, MD, physician-in-chief and scientific director, Children's Hospital, and the Vira I. Heinz Professor and chair of the Department of Pediatrics, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. This research building will serve as the hub for Children's Hospital, UPMC and the University of Pittsburgh to advance the cause of child health through cutting-edge research.

Children's Hospital's research heritage includes contributions to medical science dating back to Jonas Salk's historic polio vaccine.

"Dr. Perlmutter has transformed the research program at Children's Hospital into one of the fastest growing pediatric research programs in th
