The Department of Pediatrics is committed to using inspired science and translational research that focuses on novel discovery to address the greatest threats facing children in the 21st century, including obesity and malnutrition, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, infectious diseases, genetic disorders, asthma, prematurity, and adolescent health. Our physician-scientists lead these endeavors, informed and guided by their clinical experiences, and driven to move their discoveries to application. We are proud to have the largest number of National Institutes of Health research grants of all pediatric programs in the New York metropolitan area.
