The Center for Pediatric Research (CPR) is unique among the NIH Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) for its pediatric focus. A central component of the CPR’s mission is to provide junior faculty entering their research careers with the resources and the academic environment needed to maximize their potential to develop top-quality, extramurally funded research programs. To support these target and pilot investigators, we have developed strong core laboratory capabilities in house and established strong ties with other IDeA-funded centers in Delaware and beyond.
