The Children’s Discovery Institute began as a vision of key leaders at St. Louis Children’s Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine. These leaders dreamed of launching a research institute where scientists from multiple disciplines could work collaboratively to focus their expertise on discovering cures to deadly and crippling childhood diseases.

To continue its mission, the Children’s Discovery Institute requires ongoing charitable investments.
