There are over 30 full-time faculty members and include dedicated clinicians, dedicated basic scientists, and a large group of physician-scientists who span the spectrum of pediatric care and research. These groups work together to take care of the sickest and most vulnerable patients seen in the hospital as well as cutting-edge basic science and translational research.
