Join AUPHA colleagues Wednesday afternoon for a special site visit to the Children's National Research & Innovation Campus in Washington, D.C. With over 160,000 sq. ft. of newly renovated research and innovation space, the campus continues to pursue new, high-impact opportunities in pediatric genomic and precision medicine. This is anchored by facilities such as the the Center for Genetic Medicine Research and Rare Disease Institute. The Children's National Research & Innovation Campus is located on a nearly 12-acre portion of the former, historic Walter Reed Army Medical Center and is home to three facilities and a parking garage, located in a park-like setting. Visit their website for more details. 

Attendees will depart from the Gaylord at 12:30pm ET, and will return by 4:15pm. While at the facilities, they will get a guided tour by:

  • Kerstin Hildebrandt, VP, Research Admin, Children’s National Research Institute
  • Nathan Schlabach, Project Manager, Research Admin, Children’s National Research Institute
  • Shamia Holloway, Public Liaison, Children’s National Hospital

These leads will provide an overview and history of the facility, and lead a tour of the clinic, conference theater, Children's National Research Institute, and JLABS - Johnson & Johnson Innovation, which offers emerging life science companies modular lab units, office space, shared core laboratory equipment and business facilities, as well as links entrepreneurs within the District and across the greater Virginia and Maryland regions with the full breadth of the Johnson & Johnson Innovation model.

NOTE: Tour attendees should plan to eat lunch before departure, as it will not be provided. The Potomac District Café & Market is conveniently located on the Atrium level of the Gaylord, and has a wide selection of drinks, sandwiches, and other snack foods. 

Cost per person:  $45.00
