Research and sponsored programs

At Children’s, we focus on research and innovations that make a difference at the bedside. From improving day-to-day quality of life for children and teens, to developing new pain management approaches and adopting cutting-edge technologies – our research is completely kid and family-focused.

Children’s is engaged in many types of research, including investigator-initiated studies (led by a Children’s clinician), as well as externally sponsored multi-center trials, observational studies and registries.


Our mission is to collaborate with investigators and generate new knowledge that benefits children and strengthens our capacity to serve the community.


All clinical programs will engage in research to improve care and contribute to the field of knowledge.
