Research and Sponsored Programs (RSP) promotes and facilitates the development and implementation of quality research at Children's.
We support new and established investigators in all stages of research development, implementation and analysis. The work we do enables our investigators to explore novel ways to deliver life-saving treatments, manage pain and symptoms, and develop new methods for preventing or treating childhood diseases.
