Welcome to the University of Washington Laboratory Research Programs at the Harborview Medical Center Campus of the UW School of Medicine. Research laboratories are located in two state-of-the-art facilities: the Research & Training Building and the Ninth & Jefferson Building. These buildings, operated though the joint efforts of the University of Washington School of Medicine and Harborview Medical Center, provide modern laboratory facilities and research offices for HMC-based faculty.

The R&T Building (opened 1999) houses an auditorium, training and meeting rooms, as well as 7 floors (two below ground) of laboratories, laboratory equipment support space, core facilities, and faculty offices. Over 38 faculty conduct lab-based research at the R&T Building, representing 13 departments or divisions.

The Ninth & Jefferson Building (NJB) opened in 2009, with 20,000 sf of laboratories, lab support spaces, and associated faculty offices on the 3rd floor of the building. Approximately 5 lab-based faculty from 4 departments are located in NJB. In addition, the building houses the Department of Global Health, the Center for AIDS & STD, the Kidney Research Institute, the Eye Institute, ISIS (simulation training for students, residents and faculty), and the Neurosciences Program.

Research being conducted at Harborview Medical Center includes translational and basic research, as well as clinical studies and treatment trials, epidemiology, and health services research. Laboratory-based research includes cell biology, neurosciences, vascular biology, inflammation, infectious diseases, lung biology and microbial pathogenesis. HMC-based investigators obtain over $240 million in research and training funding per year.

This webpage is intended to provide useful information concerning ongoing lab-based research at HMC, the investigators, trainees and staff, the research facilities, and shared equipment.
