Research mission and vision

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

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