Since its founding in 1855, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) has been recognized worldwide as a leader in pediatric patient care and groundbreaking research.
In 2016, CHOP engaged in over $360 million in research activity to advance healthcare for the youngest and most vulnerable patients. Several major research streams are funded internally through our Frontier Program initiative, created to support programs that are advancing clinical care through breakthrough translational research. Frontier Program support is currently helping CHOP investigators develop exciting new treatment approaches in Thoracic Insufficiency Syndrome, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Lymphatic disorders and Cancer Immunotherapy. More Frontier Programs will be designated each year.
Licensing and startups from CHOP are bringing innovative technologies to market in many areas, including: gene therapy, oncology, teen driver safety, vaccines, rare and orphan diseases, patient privacy and medical device optimization.
The Office of Technology Transfer and the Office of Entrepreneurship and Innovation are dedicated to uniting the best minds in pediatric research with the most ingenious technology to create breakthroughs for children.
Since its founding in 1855 as a land grant institution, Penn State University has been building a robust research enterprise for the purpose of driving positive societal change, technological implementation and economic development for the public good, anchored by annual research expenditures exceeding $800 million, with over $100 million awarded to the College of Medicine. Penn State research is aimed at the pursuit of human health, environment quality and economic prosperity for current and future generations, utilizing existing expertise in precision health areas such as neurology, infectious disease, oncology, novel therapeutics, surgical technology, evolutionary biology, ecology, insecticide resistance and resistance in plant pathogens.
