CHOC Research Institute

Terence Sanger, Chief Scientific Officer at CHOC, speaks to the importance of research at a children’s hospital.

We conduct research directly with children and adolescents in a facility devoted exclusively to the care, quality of life, rights and safety of children of all ages.

At CHOC, we know that research saves lives. That’s why our Research Institute has more than 500 research studies in more than 30 specialties to provide your child with access to leading-edge treatments. Our scientists translate the latest advances in molecular profiling, including whole genome sequencing, to meet the individual needs of our patients at every stage of their young lives —from infancy through adolescence.
