The Stowers Institute for Medical Research was established in 1994. The Stowers Institute for Medical Research is a non-profit, basic biomedical research organization dedicated to improving human health by studying the fundamental processes of life. Situated on the former campus of the Menorah Medical Center in Kansas City, Missouri. Jim Stowers, founder of American Century Investments, and his wife, Virginia, opened the Institute in 2000. Today, the Institute houses 20 independent research programs and three technology development programs, including bioinformatics, proteomics and imaging. The research programs at the Stowers Institute focus on basic biomedical research in genetic model organisms as a way to understand how cells function and to decipher what goes wrong when they malfunction. Since then, the Institute has spent over 900 million dollars in pursuit of its mission. The nearly 550 Institute members, 370 are scientific staff: principal investigators, technology center directors, postdoctoral research associates and fellows, pre-doctoral research associates, and technical support staff.
