The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute provides instrumentation and technical skill through numerous core facilities that service both laboratory and clinical research programs. Providing core facilities to investigators makes research more affordable, convenient, and efficient.

With substantial Hospital support, the Institute has improved and broadened the core facilities available for the Hospital's research community, investing in equipment, services, and other capabilities as well as supporting technical staff. Each year, the Hospital invests millions of dollars in sophisticated research instrumentation for the core facilities, which are lead by scientific or faculty directors and one or more technical directors.
