We're seeking answers on behalf of children in Columbus and around the world. Our common goal is discovery and innovation that improves health and quality of life for children and their families.
Our expert faculty in the Abigail Wexner Research Institute work in interdisciplinary centers of emphasis and the Institute of Genomic Medicine. Here, collaboration and clinical-research integration aren’t just ideals, they are our reality. Our faculty scientists focus on a range of scientific areas from basic sciences to quality improvement to applied, patient-oriented research.
The work of our researchers has made us an international leader in pediatric research. Our ideas don’t just get noticed, they get funded. We are ranked in the top 10 for National Institutes of Health funding among free-standing children’s hospitals – further proof of the quality in our ideas and confidence in our ability to improve lives.

The Most Impressive Research Facilities Anywhere
From cascades of natural light to laboratories designed for collaboration, every detail has been considered in the construction of our research facilities.
