Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital recently celebrated the grand opening of its new Research and Education Building in St. Petersburg, Fla.

The new facility, designed by HDR, is built on a site adjacent to the hospital and houses research laboratories, collaborations spaces, and academic offices that unite treatment, education, research, and advocacy for neurosciences, cancer, cardiology, and neonatology.

In addition, the building includes an expanded biorepository, a new biomarker discovery center, and an advanced medical simulation center.
