About Research at Blythedale
Blythedale Children’s Hospital is committed to improving the health and quality of life of children with complex and special medical needs. Our robust Research program is a natural outgrowth of our commitment to children and our culture of innovative clinical and multi-disciplinary care. Hospital researchers are engaged in select research studies that affect the lives of children and make significant contributions to the practice and delivery of pediatric medicine.
Through its Pediatric Research Institute, Blythedale has created a center of excellence for clinical research to affect the lives of children with disabling illnesses and their families. The Hospital’s research program also serves as a model for the study of clinical outcomes for children with complex illnesses through meaningful collaborations within the Hospital community, with similar institutions around the country and around the world.
Blythedale’s Scientific Advisory Board is comprised of eminent scientists and pediatric faculty across the country that provide feedback on current projects and assists in prioritizing the Hospital’s short- and long-term research agenda. The Scientific Advisory Board also suggests additional areas of study, avenues of financial support and identifies potential collaborations. Blythedale’s Institutional Review Board is responsible for determining to types of research requiring review, and for conducting initial, ongoing and post-project review.
Collaborations are essential to the Pediatric Research vision at Blythedale Children’s Hospital. Blythedale has developed relationships with many institutions and universities to conduct research studies, including Columbia University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
