Sustaining comprehensive laboratory and clinical research facilities and faculty dedicated to the advancement of learning.

Our research builds on more than 100 years of pioneering breakthroughs, including the first successful pediatric blood and marrow transplant, the first infant heart transplant in Minnesota, and the first pediatric cochlear ear implant surgery.

We are acclaimed for our work in such areas as childhood cancer, stem cell therapies, global health, transplantation, type 1 diabetes, kidney disease, newborn care, and childhood health conditions that lead to chronic diseases in adults.
