As a pediatric clinical fellow at Cincinnati Children’s, you are welcomed into the Cincinnati Children’s Research Foundation organization. Our scientists and physicians work collaboratively to conduct innovative laboratory and clinical research to improve care for children, to investigate the outcomes of treatments, to study health care systems and to train the next generation of investigators.

Our investigators have a proud legacy of innovation, from the Oral Polio vaccine (Albert Sabin MD), the development of Artificial Surfactant (Jeffrey Whitsett MD and Timothy Weaver MD), the Rotavirus vaccine (Richard Ward PhD and David Bernstein MD), to the biomarker test used to identify kidney problems early (Prasad Devarajan MD). Read more about our history of over 60 years of discovery and innovation.

Sponsored funding has more than tripled from nearly $49 million in 2000 to more than $171 million in 2013. We now rank among the top three pediatric medical centers nationwide receiving research grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), our largest funding source.
