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.
