Kansas City Business Journal: KU Medical Center, Children's Mercy will co-lead research thanks for $27M grant

By Ellen Cagle

The University of Kansas Medical Center received a nearly $27 million grant from the National Institutes of Health, and the research it funds also will incorporate Children's Mercy.

The grant will go toward the Frontiers Clinical and Translational Science Institute at KU, part of a network of 62 hubs across the U.S. that connect scientists to resources; facilitate collaboration among researchers, communities and institutions; and offer training.

For the first time, Children's Mercy will help lead research at Frontiers.

"It is our intent for Frontiers to become the academic home for investigators engaged in all forms of clinical and translational research at our partner institutions to identify and break down barriers and improve better health outcomes for all," J. Steven Leeder said in the release. Leeder is the co-principal investigator on the Frontiers grant and deputy director of the Children’s Mercy Research Institute.
