Northwestern University is a leading national research university affiliated with clinical partners Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab (formerly RIC), each of which is consistently ranked among the top hospitals nationally among its peers. Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine ranks as one of the top research oriented medical schools in the country. Its Clinical Sciences and Translational Research center (NUCATS) functions as an integrated hub supporting and accelerating clinical and translational science across Northwestern University (including six schools), our three nationally-renowned clinical partners, our Chicago community and stakeholders, and the broad consortium of CTSA-funded institutions.
A new 600,000 square-foot Biomedical Research Building that will be adjacent and connected to the Robert H. Lurie Medical Research Center is currently under construction. The space will more than double vivarium capacity and house laboratories for both Feinberg and Lurie Children’s Hospital, and have an eventual build-out capacity of approximately 1.2 million square feet. In 2017 the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab opened its new hospital building to become the first-ever “translational” research hospital, bringing 21st century biomedical science and research directly into the clinical environment with a focus on advancing patient ability and discovering new approaches and applying (or “translating”) research in real time.
