Research process: from the lab to the hospital and back

Child health research is at the core of our commitment to deliver the best clinical care for kids. During the research process, our scientists study the genetic, biologic and cellular mechanisms of disease, injury and repair. The discoveries from these studies are then translated into improved diagnostics and treatments, providing cutting-edge therapies to our patients. Armed with new answers to the problems our patients face, we're constantly adapting our bedside protocols to deliver the best care.

By prioritizing and advancing research, education, clinical work and process improvement, we're speeding the integration of our discoveries into the clinical engine, helping patients in new and innovative ways.
