美国密苏里州斯托瓦斯医学研究所（Stowers Institute for Medical Research） www.stowers-institute.org位于密苏里州堪萨斯市，这个60万平方尺的校园里集合了这种先进设施，主要致力于通过进行细胞基本生命过程的研究，寻求尖端技术更有效的预防和治疗疾病。Stowers Institute由Jim Stowers和Virginia Stowers这两位癌症幸存者捐赠的2亿美元资助成立。The Stowers Institute for Medical Research aspires to be one of the most innovative biomedical research organizations in the world. The Institute conducts basic research on genes and proteins that control fundamental processes in living cells to unlock the mysteries of disease and find the keys to their causes, treatment, and prevention.
Jim and Virginia Stowers, cancer survivors and founders of American Century Investments, have dedicated their fortune to supporting the Institute's basic research in the hope that it will point the way to long-term solutions for gene-based diseases.
The Stowers Institute opened its doors to the first scientific research teams in November 2000 after completion of its state-of-the-art research facility in Kansas City, Missouri. Today, the Institute accommodates twenty-four independent research programs and more than 500 people work at the Institute on a daily basis, including nearly 100 postdoctoral research associates and 40 graduate students. Notable discoveries from the Institute's laboratories appear regularly in the leading peer-reviewed journals in biomedicine. Stowers scientists have quickly established the Institute's international reputation for highest quality basic research aimed at finding answers to some of the most important questions of human biology, health, and disease.
