To promote innovation that improves child, family, and community health.
To foster broad collaborative investigation that accelerates discovery across the continuum of the bench, the bedside, and the community.
To accomplish its mission, the Center emphasizes:
The Center for Translational Science works to improve the prevention and treatment of childhood diseases through “translational research,” which moves scientific discoveries into preventative and therapeutic applications that address disease processes and disease-related issues in children and their families. The goal of this work is to assure the highest quality care across the continuum from prevention through diagnosis and treatment to cure or end of life care.
