Research Centers and Cores
Our faculty thrive in a unique research environment that offers numerous opportunities to pursue multidisciplinary channels for discovery. These collaborations serve to complement the strengths of each division and will continue to lead to revolutionary advances in pediatric medicine. Our many comprehensive research centers integrate the expertise of our pediatrics researchers with that of their colleagues within the department and across Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
Research cores and other resources
The Department of Pediatrics has access to a wide variety of shared resources and research core facilities, from those serving small groups of investigators to those supporting all researchers in the Vanderbilt University Medical Center. These cores are typically under the administrative control of a research center and offer their services to all VUMC and Vanderbilt-Meharry Alliance investigators. Details about user priority, procedures, and costs can be found on the web pages for each facility, or by contacting the core manager.
