Akron Children's Rebecca D. Considine Research Institute serves as a catalyst to energize research and innovation at northeast Ohio’s largest pediatric healthcare provider.
This institute reflects the vision of William H. and Rebecca D. Considine to create a world-class research organization capable of making significant healthcare advances for infants, children and adolescents through creativity and scientific discovery.
Their generous $1 million endowment in 2009 put this venture on firm footing. Michael Reed, PharmD, a noted translational research scientist, guides the institute’s multifaceted research agenda.
With its core of dedicated research professionals and access to diverse urban, rural and suburban patient populations, the institute is well positioned to explore the full gamut of illnesses and conditions afflicting children as well as burdening families. The institute is also home to a number of novel multidisciplinary endeavors not often found in hospital research centers.
Whatever the research and development activity, the Rebecca D. Considine Research Institute is dedicated to ensuring Akron Children's Hospital stays at the leading edge of pediatric healthcare innovation.
In addition to supporting research projects spread across virtually every department and service area in the Akron Children’s health system, the institute consists of visionary centers in domains offering singular potential for novel discoveries.
We rely on your generosity to provide quality medical care to every child who needs us.
