Rady Children’s is committed to discovering treatments and cures for childhood diseases. Currently, more than 400 clinical trials and research projects are underway. Working in the research department at Rady will give you the opportunity to work beside some of the most intelligent people while working at the cutting edge of science and technology.
Our Hospital adheres to the evidence-based practice model. Our standard is not to rely simply on rules or customs, but to combine our clinicians’ personal clinical experience with rigorous research into the best available external clinical evidence. As a result of this evidence based, data driven approach, our hospital has been hailed as an international leader and innovator in clinical quality improvement.
Research and teaching also thrive through collaboration. Our affiliations with the UC San Diego School of Medicine, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and other world-class research institutions mean children everywhere can benefit from basic, clinical and translational research—and from the best minds in medicine working together. By actively participating in this network of shared knowledge, Rady Children’s is fulfilling its obligation to provide access to the very latest research for every child.
Spunky Zara Soleil Brazel was diagnosed with a deadly form of childhood cancer and spent seven months receiving chemotherapy as part of a clinical trial to treat her form of leukemia.
Rady Children’s, UC San Diego , and a network of hospitals worldwide are members of the Children’s Oncology Group (COG). This elite group discovers lifesaving treatments and improves outcomes for children with cancer by sharing critical information gathered through clinical trials. Thanks to the treatment she received during her clinical trial, Zara is thriving with no signs of cancer.
Our research experts are excited to come to work everyday because they know that this could be the day that someone finds a cure to a disease.
