In the pursuit of improving the health of children, the ideal return on every research investment is change. By its very nature, the Institute’s mission to turn scientific discovery into medical innovation necessitates changes so great they can revolutionize pediatric medicine. New information, new approaches, and new techniques are the building blocks that will help bridge the gap between research and clinical applications, the core of translational research.
CHOP Research Institute investigators are never content with standing still or accepting the status quo. By evoking change in research policies, methods, and agendas, our investigators are accelerating the pace of discovery and establishing new standards that are optimizing investigations at CHOP Research and throughout the world. Continuing to capitalize on these changes will ensure pediatric research is efficient, effective, and focused on the most urgent needs of children.
