The research in these areas focuses on understanding the normal development of organs and how abnormal development results in childhood disease.
There are many organ systems affected by pediatric disease. The Cincinnati Children's Hospital Research Foundation has initiated a 7 year expansion project that includes a new state-of-the-art research building and a commitment to hire 19 new faculty members to expand our research into the development and disease of other organ systems.
