Purpose and Activities

The foundation was incorporated to improve the health and quality of life for children through grant support of New England-based pediatric researchers. Today’s research projects encompass many disciplines that accelerate pediatric discoveries while launching the careers of promising junior faculty. The foundation's Child Health Research Awards Program, supports newly independent faculty, provides the opportunity to demonstrate creativity, and assists in the transition to other sources of research funding. Projects must be hypothesis-driven, with relevance to child health.
