Opening New Doors for Children Through Research

Whether advancing immunosuppressant management to wean transplant patients from anti-rejection drugs or seeking a cure for juvenile diabetes, UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh is expanding the research frontier with new and innovative therapies for the cure of childhood disease and disability.

Our research heritage began in the earliest years of pediatric medicine and today we’re the fastest growing pediatric research program in the United States and rank seventh in National Institutes of Health grant funding.

John G. Rangos Sr. Research Center

The John G. Rangos Sr. Research Center serves as the hub of pediatric research in Pittsburgh. In October 2008, the Research Center transferred to a new 300,000 square-foot state-of-the-art facility with nearly triple the space for research activities.
