Director's Note

Letter from the Directors


We welcome you to the Children's Research Unit located in the Children's Hospital of Georgia!  The unit is the first of its' kind developed for children in our organization.  The unit was designed to help bring studies and research from the bench to the bedside and ultimately promote better care for our patients. It will provide valuable, functional infrastructure to young as well as experienced faculty involved in preventative medicine research,behavioral change research and clinical trials.

Please join us in this journey!
