Innovative Pediatric Research
Medical professionals at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta conduct research to advance scientific knowledge and pediatric care. Investigators are involved in more than 1,325 active studies in collaboration with our academic and scientific partners, including Emory University School of Medicine and Georgia Institute of Technology. Collaborations among our research teams also extend beyond Atlanta to include other leading national and international institutions. These research partnerships yield innovative discoveries that help make children better today and healthier tomorrow.
