Research at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC
Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC’s Magee-Womens Research Institute (MWRI) is the nation’s first research center devoted exclusively to health conditions affecting women and their infants.
Since its inception in 1992, MWRI has become a nationally and internationally recognized center for women’s health study. MWRI’s diverse group of clinical scientists and investigators, affiliated with worldwide collaborative networks, initiate advances for tomorrow’s women-focused health solutions.
In 2007, MWRI opened its new state-of-the-art home for women’s health research. The 124,000 square foot, $31 million facility on Craft Ave. in Oakland doubles MWRI’s building size and will be a global center for women’s and infants’ health.
With five floors of flexible laboratory space and more than 260 scientists and staff, MWRI can broaden its interactive approach to research and practical applications.
In addition to the main facility adjacent to the hospital, the research institute operates a hospital-based clinical research center (CRC) where patients are given access to experimental treatments in a safe, monitored environment.
