The Roberts Center for Pediatric Research opened in 2017 to expand available space for CHOP Research Institute investigators and administrative employees and accommodate future growth. Built to blend into the cityscape, the glass structure nearly becomes part of the sky in the right light, and it provides work space for human resources, sponsored projects, research business management, and Core facilities. The skyscraper also serves as the hub for the Center for Autism Research, Center for Data Driven Discovery in Biomedicine, and the Department of Biomedical and Health Informatics, among others. The Roberts Center offers fantastic urban and river views, community spaces, and a café open to the public. It physically connects the neighborhood to the Schuylkill River Trail.
Advances CHOP’s education and research missions by working collaboratively to create a culture of learning, discovery, integrity, and innovation to ensure success of the next generation of scientific leaders in child health.
