Pediatric Research Transforming Care

Since the University of Louisville Department of Pediatrics was founded, our researchers and clinicians have made a mark on the treatment of pediatric disease. For example, our internationally known Twin Study, now closed, was one of the oldest and largest studies of child development related to twin birth status. Many of the vaccines that are part of the routine child immunization schedule were studied here before or shortly after licensure. Much of the prevailing wisdom about the nourishment of premature infants and human milk began at the University of Louisville.

Today, our ongoing research and innovation continue to advance the understanding of children's disease and to transform the care we deliver.
