Researchers in lab


Cutting edge clinical, translational, and basic research that focuses on childhood disease is a fundamental priority for the Department of Pediatrics. The faculty, staff, and trainees in the department are engaged in individual projects and also collaborate with other investigators across the Duke University community who are focused on improving children's health. Central to the research mission of the department is a commitment to develop the next generation of clinical investigators.
