Mission & Vision


As part of the Child Health Research Institute, the Pediatric Research Office (PRO) provides infrastructure support to research activities of Pediatric faculty at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) and Children's Hospital & Medical Center (CHMC), giving pediatric patients the opportunity to participate and receive the latest in treatment options while adhering to the highest ethical standards in research.


The Pediatric Research Office will provide the CHRI with supportive infrastructure, culture and climate through which the children of Omaha, Nebraska, the Great Plains region, and the world can have access to cutting-edge advances for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of pediatric medical conditions.

Ultimately, the Child Health Research Institute will be a regionally- and nationally-recognized site for the conduct of scientifically and ethically grounded clinical and translational pediatric research. The PRO is only a portion of the total research activity within the CHRI.
