Building Cure, Seattle Children’s new research center in the heart of downtown, promises to revolutionize pediatric medicine.

Building Cure is under final construction and not yet public. Before it opens, attendees of our next DSAccess event will get an exclusive tour of the facility’s lab, educational area and more. These limited-capacity engagements give DSA members early or unique access to the projects, people and issues shaping downtown.

You’ll have the opportunity to:

  • Experience a 3D visualization of how cancer immunotherapy works — from a patient’s perspective in the hospital to the cell production facility in Building Cure.
  • Hear from a scientist exploring how to leverage the immune system to treat and cure conditions like hemophilia and autoimmune diseases without drugs.
  • Explore tools and techniques in the Science Discovery Lab used to offer STEM education classes to students from underserved schools.

Featuring remarks from:

  • Dr. Jim Hendricks
    President, Seattle Children’s Research Institute
  • Dr. Richard James
    Researcher, Seattle Children’s Center for Immunity & Immunotherapies

The Transformation of Pacific Place: Cracking Open the Box
Wednesday, July 10

Guests at our July DSAccess got a behind-the-scenes tour of the strategic development of Pacific Place. The multi-million-dollar renovation — expected to be complete in 2019 — will create a new grand entrance on Seventh and Olive and greater connectivity to the neighborhood. Attendees also heard about the vision for the project, curating the right retail and dining mix, and how Pacific Place is part of a bigger evolution of the Pike-Pine corridor. Seattle’s Office of the Waterfront and Civic Projects provided an update on the other Pike-Pine improvements currently under design.
