Pediatric General and Thoracic Surgery Research

Home to over a dozen labs, the Division of Pediatric General and Thoracic Surgery is a large, complex division that clinically combines the mission of caring for the needs of the local pediatric population with highly sophisticated differentiated subspecialty programs that draw patients from around the world.  We offer clinical programs that allow extensive clinical collaborations and the opportunity for true bench to bedside research programs that drive and are driven by the clinical experience.  As a division, we strive to align both basic science and clinical research opportunities with those across the department and hospital in order to share and develop ideas.
