Clinical Translational Core
The aims of the Clinical Translational Core are to achieve the following objectives:
- Translation: Accelerate the translation of our basic research discoveries into new cures for and biomarkers of pediatric nervous system disorders.
- Collaboration: Develop effective new strategies for disease prevention and treatment through collaborations among Boston Children’s Hospital’s basic and clinical scientists in partnership with the IDDRC Cores and the external research community, especially other IDDRCs.
- Training: Train future leaders of pediatric translational neuroscience.
The Clinical Translational Core is made up of two collaborative components, the human neuron core and translational services, and utilizes a proven infrastructure through the Translational Neuroscience Center, with focus on the unique translational requirements for targeting the developing central nervous system and intellectual disabilities.
