Changing the Course of a Pandemic

The work of researchers at Children’s and Emory has helped change the course of the COVID-19 pandemic. We were on the forefront of COVID-19 research that allowed for the gradual return to everyday life by leading to authorization of pediatric vaccines, availability of at-home tests, authorization of new drugs for treatment, assessing antibodies and variants, and identification of potential biomarkers. These discoveries have helped. Kids are back in the classroom and participating in social activities in person once again—and it was all made possible, in part, by discoveries made in our labs and clinics.

Unprecedented Discoveries, Global Impact

Researchers at Children’s and Emory have shown what it takes to combat a pandemic. Unprecedented discoveries in COVID-19 have had a global impact while our standard research program has continued to achieve significant milestones, including a $31 million grant for the Marcus Center for Pediatric Cellular Therapies.
