What patients and families need to know
Scholarship of Discovery
The Scholarship of Discovery is organized into four major sub-themes that reflect the broad base of its investigator-initiated research.
In Behavioral and Community Research, there is an emphasis on pediatric health services and health disparities research. Discover more about our research from topics including mental health and improving patient-clinician communication.
In Patient-Oriented Research, reducing symptoms and preventing complications of illnesses are emphasized. Learn more about our research from asthma to rheumatic heart disease.
In Molecular Pathogenesis and Experimental Therapeutics, the focus is on defining pathways involved in pathobiology and evaluating “druggable targets” within those pathways to attenuate disease expression. Discover more about the research we've conducted in topics ranging from clinical pharmacology to urea cycle disorders.
In a continued effort to improve disparities in health care that affect disadvantaged children in the D.C., metro area, these projects perform research to better understand and effectively address health disparities.
