Research Programs

  • Center for Pediatric Nursing Research

    Designed specifically for nurses, this center advances clinical practice-focused research among Seattle Children’s nurses.

  • Health Equity Institute for Healthy Pregnancy, Children and Families

    Focusing on improving health outcomes for parents, children and people who are pregnant — especially those facing health inequities — through advancing research and fostering advocacy led by local community-based organizations.

  • Health Equity Research Program

    A multidisciplinary, collaborative child health equity research hub for information, resources, talent, expertise, data and partnership for expanding child health equity research at Seattle Children’s and beyond.

  • Intellectual Property Core

    The Intellectual Property Core’s goal is to help researchers and clinicians evaluate their technologies for commercialization, protect their ideas through the patent or copyright process, and transfer technologies into the marketplace via out-licensing and startup formation. We encourage companies to engage with our investigators to further the value and impact of our research.
