Breaking Ground on Building Cure

More than 1,200 community members, students, and faculty and staff attended the Feb. 2 groundbreaking celebration for Seattle Children’s Research Institute’s future Building Cure. Guests also succeeded in a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ attempt for “Most people conducting a DNA isolation experiment simultaneously.” Watch the video.

Located in Seattle’s biotech corridor at 1920 Terry Ave., Building Cure will house a new therapeutic cell processing core called the Cure Factory that will translate lab discoveries into patient treatments, with a focus on cancer immunotherapy and cell therapies for immune conditions such as type 1 diabetes and sickle cell disease.

Colorful Corner at Building Cure Site in Downtown Seattle

Construction fencing for Building Cure is up. We want to show our neighbors in the South Lake Union and downtown Seattle corridor who Seattle Children’s Research Institute is and what we do. The fence includes viewing portals for the public to witness firsthand the development of some of Building Cure’s forthcoming exciting features, such as the Science Discovery Lab, Cure Factory, community café and the 225-seat auditorium for scientific dialogue.

The fence runs around the perimeter of the Building Cure site (located at 1920 Terry Ave.) and will be up for the duration of construction.
