A Message from the Chief Research Officer at Children's Hospital Colorado

Dear Colleagues,

The Children’s Hospital Colorado Research Institute will continue to be a leader in developing basic and clinical knowledge that drives our supply of new medicines, devices, diagnostic approaches and other health care innovations. Our scientists, physicians and staff within the Research Institute are currently implementing an ambitious strategic plan to markedly expand the amount, scope and quality of child health research in virtually every pediatric subspecialty.

To this end, we are working collaboratively in conducting innovative basic laboratory investigation, performing patient-oriented research to translate discoveries at the laboratory bench into the improved clinical care for children, investigating the outcomes of treatments and methods of diagnosis to provide the best patient care, developing the next generation of clinical and basic pediatric investigators, and engaging our community in studies to assure the health and well-being of all children.

Take a moment to visit our emphasis areas and connect with research that sparks your interest.

We look forward to working with you to brighten the future of Child Health Research.
