Super Sleuths to Unravel Perplexing Pediatric Cases in Undiagnosed Diseases Network

Dealing with a mystery illness that doesn’t appear to match any conditions described in medical textbooks can entangle families on a diagnostic odyssey for years and even decades. Dozens of examinations, a barrage of tests, multiple misdiagnoses, and trips in and out of hospitals can leave them exhausted and no closer to knowing what is wrong with their child.

Those struggling to find a diagnosis can now turn to a new team of super sleuths from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania who are ready to unravel these perplexing diseases, in both children and adults.

Entrepreneurial Science Scholars Turn Ideas Into Medical Innovation

By definition, entrepreneurs are energetic leaders who challenge existing ideas to drive impactful change. Entrepreneurs think outside the box, follow their passion, and stay resilient and resourceful to achieve their goals. At Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, fellows in the Entrepreneurial Science Scholars Program do all of these things — and more — to improve the health of children and families.

On Feb. 22, we celebrated this year’s CHOP Entrepreneurial Science Scholars, a group of six clinician-researchers who are conducting pioneering research and innovation in diverse and critical fields. The CHOP Entrepreneurial Science Scholars Program aims to produce highly trained investigators skilled in translational research and the generation of creative solutions to biomedical problems. Joseph St. Geme, MD, Physician-in-Chief and Chairman of the Department of Pediatrics at CHOP, hosted the event.
