  • Pediatric Discovery Council

    The Pediatrics Discovery CouncilĀ aims to sustain and expand discovery in basic science, clinical, translational, quality improvement, epidemiology, public health and all scholarly areas that generate new knowledge.

    We aim to:

    • Recruit and retain highly qualified academic physicians/scientists;
    • Provide an exceptional environment for discovery;
    • Manage and leverage resources to succeed in our mission;
    • Develop collaborative enterprise with other institutions, particularly those in Mississippi;
    • Seek and obtain appropriate funding for research;
    • Support the values and goals of UMMC.

    Our ultimate goal is to increase the number of pediatric clinical trials and research projects conducted within the department.
