An Illuminating Year of Research Innovation
Research saves lives. At CHOP Research we think about this reality every day. It is the thought that drives the engine of discovery, the immutable force that compels investigators to push against the edges of knowledge and expand our concept of medical innovation. Our competitive nature pushes us to the forefront of translational medicine, where basic and clinical research meet to make the impossible a reality and to create new ways of identifying and treating pediatric disease.
Our insistence on being the best has lead to an enormous level of success, which will serve the needs of patients at Children’s Hospital and around the globe. CHOP Research investigators published more than 750 articles during the fiscal year, work that communicates, validates, and challenges the discoveries our investigators have made. Our research was published in many influential journals that reach a wide, diverse audience, such as Nature, Nature Genetics, and the Journal of Clinical Investigation, and prestigious specialty journals that communicate directly with leading subject-matter authorities, including Pediatrics and Brain.
The phenomenal research findings from CHOP Research are possible because of our high level of fiscal support. The number of grant awards to CHOP Research increased 75 percent over the last fiscal year and the Institute remains a leader in pediatric funding from the National Institutes of Health.
