The research of our talented team of CDI scientists covers both the full translation SPECTRUM of RESEARCH as well as the broad CDI Research Themes. CDI fosters team science reflecting a rich collaboration with many other departments, centers and organizations.
As such, many of our scientists address more than one type of Spectrum or Theme.
Each scientist’s research primary area fits into the following types of studies to show how the scientific findings translate to Humans (Basic Science & T1), Patients (T2), to Practice (T3) to Population Health (T4).
The Institute pioneers advancements in pediatric medicine in the following main areas of research:
Research in each theme focuses on prevention, screening, treatment, and training opportunities for the next generation of pediatricians. A mentorship program in the six primary research areas enables younger physicians and scientists to learn from UCLA's world-class experts in pediatric medicine and collaboratively with related disciplines.
