The Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital is one of the fastest growing pediatric research centers in the United States and is ranked in the top 10 for National Institutes of Health funding among free-standing children’s hospitals.
The Research Institute encompasses more than 500,000 square feet of dedicated research space on the Nationwide Children’s campus. The Institute is organized into 12 Centers of Emphasis that allow traditional academic boundaries to be crossed and merged to facilitate interdisciplinary research:
|Battelle Center for Mathematical Medicine||Injury Research and Policy|
|Biobehavioral Health||Innovation in Pediatric Practice|
|Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Research||Microbial Pathogenesis|
|Childhood Cancer and Blood Diseases||Molecular and Human Genetics|
|Clinical and Translational Research||Perinatal Research|
|Gene Therapy||Vaccines and Immunity|
Centers are structured to encourage collaboration, team science and the free flow of ideas.
Our investigators also have access to cutting-edge shared resources, which provide a cost-efficient way to keep advanced technology available to all faculty. Through partnerships and collaborations at the local, national and international level, they share knowledge and learn from others to improve child health.
The Research Institute engages in high-quality, cutting-edge research according to the highest scientific and ethical standards. The goal is simple: improved health for all children and their families.
