About the CHOC Research Institute
The CHOC Research Institute was formally established in 2003, after years of active participation in pediatric clinical research. Today, the Research Institute supports more than 350 active human-subject research studies across nearly all of our pediatric subspecialty areas.
The Institute’s Sponsored Projects and Research Compliance offices administer and oversee federal NIH, California State CIRM, private foundation and donor funding in support of translational and clinical child health research.
CHOC’s affiliation with the University of California, Irvine and our active collaborations with top academic institutions from around the United States expand our access to leading-edge research projects and resources. Our patients, and indeed children worldwide, benefit from these diverse efforts – bringing breakthroughs from the lab to the bedside.
