From 2010-2015, the faculty members of the Cincinnati Children’s Research Foundation produced more than 7,000 studies published in peer-reviewed scientific and medical journals. These contributions have had far-reaching impact across pediatric medicine, leading to new therapeutics, improved diagnostics, and significant advances in our fundamental understanding of human development and disease.
From this impressive body of work, six advances stand out as Cincinnati Children’s premier scientific achievements of 2010-15. The following innovations and breakthroughs were selected by committees of senior research leaders, led by Tracy Glauser, MD, and Jeffrey Whitsett, MD. Their selections reflect work with particularly powerful influence upon basic, translational and clinical research.
