Clinical and translational research are critical components for the success of the mission of The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute. Such research is often performed by using clinical trials to develop, produce and evaluate the effectiveness of new treatments and therapies for diseases. Our multidisciplinary teams of clinicians and researchers focus on making discoveries in the lab and turning them into treatments that directly benefit patients.
We are a national leader in Phase I clinical trials for childhood cancer and are proud to offer the most cutting-edge clinical trials for many other conditions as well.
