Research and academic affiliations

Children's Hospital Oakland Research Institute (CHORI) has the privilege of having a world-class research center associated with the medical center, UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland. CHORI has built a reputation as one of the most productive and well-funded children's research facilities in the country. CHORI's eight research centers support an ongoing and comprehensive approach to pediatric research and development. Because of the close ties between our medical research facility and our children's hospital, we're able to foster invaluable collaboration between scientists and doctors. By adopting this "bench-to-bedside" approach, we are able to harness knowledge from our scientific research to bring the most cutting edge clinical ideas to our children.
