Centers of Emphasis

Transdisciplinary Centers of Emphasis (COEs) strengthen our scientific capacity to advance the understanding and improvement of child health. Led by faculty in the Department of Pediatrics, they promote integration and collaboration to enhance research productivity and growth.

The Department of Biomedical and Health Informatics (DBHi) explores how data, technology, and knowledge converge to improve scientific research and patient care.

The Center for Applied Genomics is rapidly accelerating the pace of genomics discoveries and translation, developing new ways to diagnose and treat children affected by rare and complex medical disorders.

The Center for Autism Research (CAR) works to discover evidence-based ways to improve the lives of individuals on the autism spectrum and with related conditions throughout the lifespan. CAR aims to discover causes of autism, develop treatments, support families affected by ASD, and provide world-class training.

Improving cure rates and decreasing side effects for children, adolescents, and young adults.

Driving biological discoveries and medical innovations by integrating genomics, big data, and computing.

Transforming the healthcare discovery ecosystem by providing innovative care for all children through collaborative, data-driven science.

Translating research into action to keep children, teens, and young adults safe from injury.

Advancing the understanding of, and potential treatments for, a multitude of disorders and diseases by focusing on mitochondria.

The Center for Single Cell Biology will provide a unified research infrastructure for the single-cell research community at CHOP, driving scientific discovery and advancement of pediatric patient care by harnessing the power of state-of-the-art single cell technologies.

Using clinical effectiveness research to discover and disseminate knowledge about best practices in the management of pediatric disease.

Achieving optimal child health and well-being by informing program and policy changes through interdisciplinary research.

Understanding, developing, and applying gene and related cell and nucleic acid therapies to find cures for debilitating disorders.

The Resuscitation Science Center is a multifaceted, collaborative scientific platform dedicated to understanding critical illnesses and accelerating discoveries to improve resuscitation care and outcomes for children. By partnering translational and clinical science, the Center takes a true bench-to-bedside approach to pediatric research.
