Exposure to research and other scholarly activities is especially important for physicians. Learning to navigate current literature to retrieve and evaluate information is critical in the pursuit of evidence-based medicine and quality patient care. For students and residents, participating in research is an excellent way to gain exposure to current theory and practice and to test further interest in a specific field. Our faculty are engaged in basic science, clinical studies, and translational research.

The Pediatric Research Office facilitates projects for Pediatric Faculty, who serve patients at both UNMC and Children's Hospital & Medical Center. These projects reflect a diversity of work for the National Institutes of Health, Pharmaceutical sponsors, the Center for Disease Control and investigator initiated research. Other projects are ongoing in the areas of Child Health Policy, Hematology and Oncology, Pulmonology, Endocrinology and Metabolism.
