    Our challenge: How do we create breakthroughs in scientific discovery and medical treatment?

    We believe it takes the courage to ask difficult questions, the creativity to develop ideas, the intellect and talent of our faculty and staff, and the discipline and dedication to continue our history of scientific discoveries. This is how we have produced the breakthroughs that have benefited children over the 85 years since the founding of our Cincinnati Children’s Research Foundation (CCRF). This year’s research report summarizes the work of our exceptional research divisions. More detail is available online. In selected stories, we profile the efforts of a few extraordinary scientists and clinicians who have joined forces to tackle some of the most perplexing childhood diseases.
