The Center for Human Phenomic Science (CHPS) provides the resources, environment, operations, and training to support and promote high-quality clinical and translational research by qualified investigators. It launched with the support of the Clinical and Translational Science Award, a National Institute of Health Roadmap initiative. CHPS merged the General Clinical Research Centers at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and University of Pennsylvania Health System, and then introduced new programs and services.

CHPS has child and adult specific facilities at CHOP and UPHS respectively, as well as joint components. It is the Center’s policy to charge for services provided to investigators for the purpose of supporting the program and expanding the current services available. All protocols are approved by the CHPS Resource Committee.

For more information, please contact John Krall, CHPS Administrative Director.
