Cardiac Center Research

The physicians and scientists at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's Cardiac Center are internationally recognized leaders in basic and clinical research in pediatric heart disease. Our team works to bring important discoveries rapidly from bench to bedside to benefit children everywhere.

We are one of seven hospitals funded by The Pediatric Heart Network (PHN). PHN is a group of Hospitals chosen for their experienced research teams and formed by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute to study problems in children with heart disease. We are also a leading recipient of funding from the National Institutes of Health as well as other individuals and organizations.
