Research Labs

The recent extraordinary advances in developmental, cellular and molecular biology present possibilities for the prevention and treatment of disease that could not have been imagined just a few years ago. Thanks to the commitment of the Richard King Mellon Foundation, the Institute will be able to take these advances to the next level.

The scientists within the Institute come from different disciplines and work together as a think tank to spur innovation. Research activities have focused on pursuits such as helping the heart muscle to heal itself, therapies to treat pediatric autoinflammatory diseases, and combating inflammation, the body’s natural defense against infection, when it spirals out of control.
