Children’s Research Institute (CRI)

The Children’s Research Institute (CRI) was established in 2004.  The goal of the CRI is to develop comprehensive, thematic research programs which translate advances in basic science to improved care for children.  The CRI currently has over 100 Physician-Scientists working in multiple Pediatric Programs of Research Excellence, including:

  • Genetics
  • Immunodeficiencies and host defense
  • Transplant Immunology
  • Cardiovascular Biology
  • Developmental and Cell Biology
  • Behavioral Health
  • Community Health and Prevention
  • Health Services Research

In the last 5 years, NIH funding in the Department of Pediatrics has increased steadily and significantly, with the Department ranking #XX nationally in NIH funding among pediatric departments.

The CRI supports unique translational research cores for investigators, including a section of Quantitative Health Sciences (epidemiology and biostatistics); 2,000 sq. ft. aquatic facilities for zebrafish and other aquatic animal models; a section of Genomics (microarray expression analysis and high-throughput gene sequencing); a section of histology and imaging (robotics, dual photon confocal microscopy, laser capture microdissection) and others (see CRI website link above).
