We pursue this mission by conducting innovative research led by our faculty, by engaging in multidisciplinary research projects with basic research and clinical divisions of Cincinnati Children's, by providing education, training and consultation to students and professionals at Cincinnati Children's, University of Cincinnati, VA and in the community, and by working with public health agencies and health care organizations to promote communication and synergy between academic research and public health practice.
