Nationally ranked care. Another way our love for kids just keeps on growing.

 Pediatric Research Institute  

We are excited to announce our new location at Saint Louis University's Edward A. Doisy Research Center. Our vision statement of the Institute:

The well-being of all children is their inviolable right. This principal must be supported by conducting research relevant to pediatric issues that results in healthier happier lives for present and future generations.

The Pediatric Research Institute at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital operates to improve and assure the health and safety of children in the greater St. Louis area. By promoting research that advances the knowledge and management of childhood health and diseases, a number of nationally known physician-scientists from the Saint Louis University School of Medicine conduct research that can be applied to the clinical setting to improve disease prevention and treatment.

Ongoing programs include the study of pediatric infections and vaccine development, cardiac transplant rejection, liver diseases (particularly related to alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency and abnormal iron metabolism), metabolic diseases (Morquio Syndrome) and neonatal lung inflammation.
