From cascades of natural light to laboratories designed for collaboration, every detail has been considered in the construction of our research facilities. Scientists want to work at Nationwide Children’s, evidenced by the number of investigators nearly doubling in the past decade. And we are meeting the increased demand, adding a third research building to one of the largest pediatric health facilities in the country.

Decades of Growth
The Research Institute has since expanded to include 12 Centers of Emphasis, more than doubled the number of principal investigators (since 2001), and has experienced increased federal funding, with exceptional support from the National Institutes of Health. Our scientific faculty publish more than 500 studies in medical and scientific journals annually. We’re home to more than 900 clinical studies.
Three State-of-the-Art Facilities Dedicated to Research
Today, three dedicated research buildings comprise The Research Institue at Nationwide Children’s Hospital: the Wexner Institute (1987), Research Building II (2004) and Research Building III (2012), providing 525,000 square feet of dedicated research space. Additional dry labs including the Center for Biobehavioral Health, the Center for Innovation in Pediatric Practice are located in the J West Building, adjacent to the Wexner Institute. The standard laboratory is modular and averages 1,200 square feet of bench space.
