We couldn't be more pleased to announce that the Research Institute's brand-new blog, Cornerstone, is now up and running! The blog will serve as the go-to source for CHOP Research-related news. Cornerstone bloggers — led by Research Communications — will share frequent, dynamic updates and comments about the exciting work being done every day here at CHOP.

Cornerstone's title reflects the importance of research to clinical care and medical progress: without research, we wouldn't have any new treatments or medicines. And here at Children's Hospital, we have a long history of “going first and being first” and improving the lives of countless children by conducting innovative, groundbreaking research.

The CHOP Research Institute is a very busy place, so be sure to check the blog often (subscribe to our RSS feed!) for updates.

If you have questions about the blog, or would like to explore the possibility of guest blogging, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
