Working Wonders Through Research

Research is a vital part of the daily activity at Golisano Children’s Hospital at Strong and in the University of Rochester Department of Pediatrics.

From bench research to clinical trials, clinical studies, and health services research, we have a long history of bringing safer, more effective drugs and treatments to children in need.

One of the Top 20 Pediatric Research Programs in the United States

Promising New Investigations are Under Way

  • An investigation into the mechanism and prevention of lung damage resulting from the organism Pneumocystis carinii
  • A study within Hematology/Oncology of how red blood cells are formed in the embryo and later in development
  • An examination of the physiology of lung damage during conditions such as bronchopulmonary dysplasia, oxygen toxicity, and environmental pollutants
  • Research to gain a better understanding of how the normal kidney adapts to metabolic acidosis and what goes wrong in renal tubular acidosis
  • Through the National Children’s Oncology Group, testing of specific therapies for various forms of pediatric cancer
  • We are an active AIDS Clinical Trial Center
  • We are members of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) Neonatal Network. As one of only 16 centers chosen by the NICHD we originate and conduct multi center clinical trials on promising neonatal therapies
    More Neonatal Research
  • Research to improve the delivery of immunizations and health care to the poor, to end smoking in teenagers, to manage asthma in early childhood, to integrate telemedicine and home nursing in the care of children away from the hospital, and to measure the impact of NY Child Health a Improvement Program
