At CHOP, a great idea can come from anywhere in the organization and that’s why we have created multiple entry points to foster innovative collaborations and advancements in healthcare.
“All types of innovation are valued at CHOP – and while research is indeed a critical element of our strategy, it is by no means the only way we innovate.” – Madeline Bell, CEO
Each of our Innovation offices and programs serve to promote scientific breakthroughs to better understand childhood diseases and improve patient care. Together, the offices of Technology Transfer, Entrepreneurship & Innovation, and Collaborative & Corporate Research Contracts work with partners to advance pediatric healthcare around the world.
Our teams think big to see a world of possibilities. With support from our generous donors, we create a unique innovation ecosystem that brings together the best minds in science and medicine in a resource-rich environment. This inspiration and collaboration accelerates our most promising ideas into scalable solutions that provide life-changing treatments to pediatric patients. See all the ways we are “Thinking Bigger,” and learn how to help us achieve our next extraordinary breakthrough.
The Innovation Ecosystem helps innovators translate abstract concepts and knowledge into actual value for CHOP’s patients, families, and community.
By investing in Frontier Programs that bring the best minds to the most challenging conditions, CHOP is once again redefining what’s possible.
