Founded:
1922
Mission:
Children's Hospital's 10 Centers of Emphasis encompass seemingly disparate research areas, but all contribute to the greater strategic goals of the hospital's research efforts.
The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia was founded in 1855, but it took nearly seven decades for research to become part of the institution's mission. Growing from a one-room laboratory in 1922, Children's Hospital has made incredible progress since: the basis of the foundation of the Society for Pediatric Research, the country's first pediatric research department, and numerous scientific breakthroughs and vaccine discoveries.
