Researchers at Cincinnati Children's apply molecular technologies to the elucidation of disease mechanisms, and to the development of treatment for heritable diseases and inherited disease susceptibilities.
Gene Therapy research focuses on developing and improving gene transfer technology to treat childhood diseases at the genetic level.
