Boston Children's is home to the largest research center at a pediatric hospital, treating the sickest children and most complex cases. Our doctors, researchers, nurses and clinicians work tirelessly to find cures. When scientists and caregivers work side-by-side, new discoveries happen daily and more children are saved everywhere.
Over 228 clinical trials are taking place at any given moment. About one third are behavior studies. The rest are therapeutic, searching for new treatments.
