Research Gives Kids A Someday

At Nationwide Children’s Hospital, The Research Institute leads the way with life-saving research, getting closer to new breakthroughs every single day.

But there’s more work ahead.

Your gift funds our ground-breaking research. Research that saves more preemies and cancer patients. Research that finds alternatives to invasive surgeries. And research that uses genomics to find causes of the most common birth defects.

Our research isn’t possible with your gift. Here’s how your support is giving our patients a someday. 





Nationwide Children's researchers have discovered a new chemotherapy that allows other chemotherapies to more readily reach their targets. They've also created a first-of-its-kind virtual reality game for hemophilia patients to distract them during painful infusions and other procedures.

Our cardiology researchers are using genomics to find genetic causes of congenital heart disease, the most common kind of birth defect that affects approximately 40,000 births per year. 




Our Heart Center is constantly searching for new, better ways to deliver the finest care. Our cardiac catheterization suites are the first of their kind in the world and deliver the finest care to babies born with heart defects.
