In many ways, 2013 was a banner year for The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the Research Institute. We achieved a number of firsts, notably being named the best children's hospital in the country by both U.S. News & World Report and Parents magazine.
We like to highlight the whole range of research at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, from basic discoveries at the lab bench to clinical findings applied at the patient's bedside. But we have an abundance of updates to share today about the clinical side of research.
Whether children are under the steady hand of surgeon and anesthesiologist, or medical and research trainees are under the guidance of an experienced mentor, knowledge makes all the difference. This much is clear from the top stories in our weekly roundup of research news at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
