University of Minnesota doctors and researchers put a big focus on our smallest patients.
By operating at the intersection of clinical care, research and education, we're able to create and deliver the latest innovations in pediatric medicine.
The University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital is Minnesota’s first and only academic pediatric hospital. There, the physicians often care for children no other health care system can treat.
Our pediatric focus areas include:
- Examining the impact of pediatric cancer treatments
- Conducting new research into the development of juvenile diabetes to stop the disease in its tracks
- Pediatric transplants that help children live longer, more normal lives
- Searching for ways to combat childhood obesity and health disparities that exist among children
University research is geared toward getting at the source of health problems, laying the groundwork for children to grow into healthy adults.
