Children's Mercy Hospital (CMH) is dedicated to becoming a leader in pediatric translational research. A strategic planning initiative established the Children's Mercy Research Institute (CMRI) to focus on research and research infrastructure. Through the generosity of two philanthropic gifts totaling $150 million, the hospital has built a nine story, 375,000 square foot facility enabling research scientists to gain access to state-of-the-art research technology as well as dry lab and wet lab space to support that research. The CMRI building opened in the fall of 2020. The building includes an auditorium for presentations to train medical school students and inform the public about pediatric healthcare innovations that are being developed and created by research scientists and physicians here in collaboration with others throughout the nation and world. In addition these generous gifts will help support funding for scientific programs and recruitment. Research conducted today at CMH includes basic science and clinical research in numerous areas including pharmacology, cancer, cardiology, genetic diseases and health outcomes. Areas of research strength include Precision Therapeutics, Genomics Medicine, Population Health and Innovations in Health Care Delivery. During the year ended June 30, 2020 there were more than 495 active sponsored research projects. The Children's Research Institute occupies about 4% of the space on the main campus and is 4% of the total annual operating budget. Children's Mercy spent $59.6 million in the year ended June 30, 2020 on research and per information from the NIH Reporter received more than $7.75 Million in NIH funding in this same time period. More than 900+ publications were accepted and/or published. The Children's Research Institute provides seed funding to Investigators with internal competitive grant programs such as the Midwest Cancer Alliance and the Katherine Berry Richardson (KBR) Fund, with expectations that this funding will lead to applications for externally funded grant programs in the future.
