Research Communications, part of the department of Marketing Communications, works to advance the research mission of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles by sharing stories of innovative investigations conducted at The Saban Research Institute. Through our own publications, as well as television, print and radio interviews conducted by the media, we increase public awareness of our scientists and our transformational research programs.

The goal of our work in Research Communications is to reach other members of the scientific community and spark collaboration, alert parents about cutting edge therapies available to their child through clinical trials, introduce philanthropists to the work of our scientists and inspire a love of science in students of all ages.
