Children's Hospital Oakland receive NIH grants
Date:7/9/2008

July 7, 2008 Oakland, Calif. Children's Hospital Oakland's research institute is ranked 5th in the nation for research grants from the National Institutes of Health to children's hospitals. In 2007, Children's research institute received more than $23 million in awards from the NIH. This feat was accomplished with only 41 grants, making the average value of the institute's grants second in the nation.

Children's research institute is internationally renowned, and considered one of the leading research enterprises in the San Francisco Bay Area. Institute funding from the NIH is being used to continue groundbreaking research, including research on new ways to treat cystic fibrosis lung infections, prevent cardiovascular disease and diabetes, and cure sickle cell disease. With 30 principal investigators supported by NIH grants, Children's Hospital Oakland hopes to attract biotech companies to Oakland.

"Because we're not a university, we can make decisions in a very short time," states Bertram Lubin, MD, Children's senior vice president of research. "That's attractive to companies, and it's attractive to the kinds of entrepreneurial scientists we bring to the research institute. There are no administrative constraints for a good idea and good opportunity, if funds are available."

Children's Hospital's research institute receives about $50 million each year from grants and is among the leading pediatric research institutions in the world. It has worldwide interests with a goal of treating locally and healing globally.
