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.

  • Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Shares Patient Imaging Records through Novel App
    Parents of patients treated at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles can download a free app called ImageInbox on their smartphones, which allows them to receive imaging files or to request the files be sent directly to another caregiver. CHLA is the first clinical site to offer the app, which is now available for free to any patient. 


  • Minimal Residual Disease Alone Not Predictive in T-cell Leukemia
    Researchers found that the presence of a few remaining leukemia cells, called minimal residual disease (MRD), at the end of induction chemotherapy was not predictive of risk or outcome in children with T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). This opens the possibility for patients with T-cell ALL who have MRD to achieve complete remission without undergoing intensified cancer treatments and their associated toxicities.
