Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
Today at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh we are expanding our research programs as never before. Incredibly, our scientists are exploiting advanced technologies that enable investigation of disease all the way down to the molecular level to gain knowledge necessary to develop new therapies for our patients. Diabetes, heart defects, childhood cancer, and genetic disorders are just a few of the targets Children's investigators have set their sights on.
When it comes to research, much distinguishes Children’s from other pediatric medical institutions.
Major leaps in pediatric healthcare begin with small steps in the laboratory, and often these occur on the microscopic level. The focal point for pediatric basic laboratory research at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh is the John G. Rangos Sr. Research Center, where nearly 390 active protocols are being pursued by more than 125 principal investigators in 63 separate laboratories. Significant current programs include:
Today, Children’s exceptional team of dedicated researchers use Core Facilities that are equipped with the most advanced tools, allowing them to conduct basic research and investigate the origins of disease down to the molecular level.
And while hundreds of individuals at Children’s are engaged in basic research programs, in some cases our studies include multidisciplinary teams that extend beyond the walls of our facility for example to the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh, the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University and local biotechnology start-ups.
Although laboratory research has been fundamental to Children’s for decades, in many ways we see ourselves in the early stages of our mission, thanks to new technologies and tools, a growing knowledge base and a cadre of experts who are building a foundation for the breakthroughs still to come.
