Research Institute Annual Reports

Nobel Prize winner Albert Szent-Györgyi once said, “Discovery consists of seeing what everybody has seen and thinking what nobody has thought.” 

Every day, we’re privileged to witness this spirit of discovery at Akron Children’s, both in the work of our hospital investigators and the staff of the Rebecca D. Considine Research Institute, as we seek to answer childhood diseases’ toughest questions. 

Through this ongoing pursuit, we want to ensure a purposeful way to focus our efforts in support of our researchers by growing Akron Children’s research programs to best position us with excellence in clinical care, success in a value-based environment, recruitment of top talent and expansion of education. 

The past year has been a big one for our hospital investigators and our institute as we created the blueprint to build the next generation of Akron Children’s pediatric research program. 

Through the ongoing efforts of a comprehensive research steering committee, we developed a plan to transform the strategic direction of our hospital’s research program – one to cast a new vision for the research institute and our many clinical investigators – by defining targeted goals within thematic focus areas to support our efforts today and for years to come.
