Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago and the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.
What We Do

We firmly believe that productive research programs enrich clinical practice as well as enhance our educational goals. Our faculty members, including several designated surgeon-scientists, are engaged in a wide range of innovative research. We are especially dedicated to multidisciplinary research, and the proximity of the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago to the Feinberg campus provides the opportunity for enhanced collaboration with our medical school colleagues.
