The Kennedy Krieger Institute is building a research center focused on how adverse childhood experiences, such as poverty, unstable housing, and other social factors stemming from inequality, impact brain development. The Baltimore health care institution is planning a $15 million renovation to its building at 707 N. Broadway to become the home of the Center for the Neuroscience of Social Injustice. The building currently serves as an inpatient center and also holds other research areas and facilities. CEO Dr. Bradley Schlaggar said there will be no displacement of patient care, since the renovations will be taking place at the building’s research floors. He added that the center is more of a reflection of an institutional research focus, rather than a physical building location. The Maryland Board of Public Works approved a $2.5 million grant for the center on Wednesday.
