Research Campus

In the bustling heart of Kansas City, you’ll find a ten-acre oasis of stately buildings and gorgeously manicured grounds with walking paths and ponds. And while impressive from the outside, it’s what’s inside that really wows.

The design of the Institute’s spaces provides a cutting-edge research facility with a warm and inspiring atmosphere that encourages collaboration and interaction. The Institute boasts beautiful large, open spaces for hosting meetings and conferences. But often, the initial sparks of collaboration occur at the espresso machine in the Stowers Café or at a yoga class in the on-site fitness center.

Not to be outdone by the impressive common spaces, the laboratory spaces are designed to be easily adaptable and equipped with the latest state-of-the-art technology. And, a comprehensive suite of scientific support groups enhances the efficiency of our research programs.
