Breakthroughs in basic science build the foundation for clinical research and our treatment of children’s health. Many basic scientists, however, find themselves wanting to play a more active role in connecting their lab discoveries from the bench to the bedside. The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia held a Q&A panel, “How to Break Into Translational Research As a Basic Scientist,” in October as part of their week-long, biannual Translational Research Workshop.

Art meets medicine and cell phones support skin diagnoses in this week’s roundup of research news at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, as our latest headlines show science can find the best partners in unlikely places. Along with a creative study on the power of art observation for ophthalmology led by Gil Binenbaum, MD, MSCE, pediatric eye surgeon at CHOP, we also cover updates from researchers developing a teledermatology app, learn about novel pathways in the gene mutations that cause hearing loss, and congratulate Vinay Nadkarni, MD, on his latest honor from the American Heart Association.
How do you turn an idea into an invention, a discovery into a device, or a project into a product that will impact how we care for children and drive innovation? Whether it’s finding funding, partnering with the right team members, or accessing the most effective resources, researchers and entrepreneurs face many barriers before they’re able to bring an idea to the bedside. With the launch of the new Center for Health, Devices, and Technology (Penn Health-Tech), faculty members at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia now have the opportunity to access a main ingredient that helps to break through many of those barriers: connections.
CAR T-cell therapy tops this week’s research roundup, with news about the experimental immunotherapy designed to re-engineer a patient’s cells to fight cancer making late-breaking and captivating headlines across the nation.
When it comes to bedside alarms for conditions like low oxygen saturation, tachycardia, or cardiac arrhythmias, four main factors contribute to faster nurse response times.
For the fifth year in a row, we are excited to announce that U.S. News & World Report’s annual survey has awarded our department of Pediatrics at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania first place in pediatric medical education.
