Who are we?

The Laboratory of Pediatrics of the Erasmus University Medical Center is a research laboratory. It is part of the department of Pediatrics and as such it is strongly embedded in the Sophia Children’s Hospital, a perfect setting for successful translational research. During its more than 50 years of existence, research in the lab has developed into a dynamic bidirectional interaction between scientist researchers from the Pediatrics laboratory and key clinical researchers in the pediatric hospital.
