The Research Institute’s Annual Report 2016, which you can find here, features dozens of inspiring and engaging stories that highlight new programs, our commitment to collaboration and excellence, and how our investigators and staff are leading the way in innovation and driving change in children’s care. I encourage you to take a look at the report and learn more about some of the remarkable research, new leadership, and major milestones from 2016. And if there’s a story you like, please share! Alongside each story is an icon that will let you easily share through your email and social media. Here are a few of my favorite quotes from each section, to get you started:

As you can see in our 2016 Research Annual Report, there is no end to how we are accelerating breakthroughs at CHOP. Our stories not only reflect the discoveries we make but also what motivates us every day, the impact our work has on patients and families, and how our initiatives and programs advance healthcare and contribute to our understanding of pediatric diseases and conditions.
