Since HHF was awarded a $6 million grant from The Erie Community Foundation to help launch Magee-Womens Research Institute (MWRI) Erie in 2019, we have been busy bringing important research and job opportunities to Erie.
Between the affiliated research teams at UPMC Hamot and Penn State Behrend, 18 new jobs have been created to date, attracting both local and national talent.
Construction is now complete on MWRI Erie's brand-new research facilities at Magee-Womens, UPMC Hamot, which will further expand the research capabilities. The Clinical and Translational Research Center is located on the first floor of the hospital, with the Obstetrical Specimen Procurement Unit on the third floor.
This work is sustained by The Erie Community Foundation grant, numerous private funders, the Hirtzel Foundation, Penn State Behrend, UPMC, UPMC Hamot, and Magee-Womens Research Institute and Foundation.
