organizational structure of the center for translational research

The Center for Translational Research is organized into three major sub-themes that reflect the broad base of its investigator-initiated research: 

These sub-themes include investigator-initiated programs, as well as NIH-funded consortia in which Children’s National researchers play leadership roles.

Within Patient-Oriented Research, reducing symptoms and preventing complications of illnesses are emphasized.

In Behavioral and Community Research, there is an emphasis on pediatric health services and health disparities research. Studies conducted by the Center faculty extend along the full spectrum of translational research.
