Children's Hospital, New Orleans

The Research Institute for Children
At the heart of Children’s Hospital’s Main Campus, scientists and clinicians are advancing the knowledge of several childhood diseases at The Research Institute for Children (RIC). A collaboration between Children’s Hospital and the Pediatrics Department at LSU Health Sciences Center – with a formal academic affiliation with the University of New Orleans – the RIC benefits from the ease at which research efforts can be transferred from the laboratory to the bedside.

The mission of the RIC is to perform research that combines the latest science, technology and medical practices to discover more effective ways to prevent and treat childhood diseases, improve the quality of children’s health, and educate and provide an opportunity for young scientists and physicians to train in an outstanding research environment.
