The Herman B Wells Center for Pediatric Research conducts basic science and translational research within the Department of Pediatrics at Indiana University School of Medicine. The Wells Center houses more than 200 faculty investigators, staff and trainees seeking answers to the most pressing questions related to childhood illness.

With the collaboration between scientists and physicians, the center aims to increase knowledge of causes and mechanisms of serious pediatric diseases while developing innovative approaches to diagnosis and treatment of childhood illnesses.

Eight thematic research programs examine the genetic and environmental factors that influence the development and progression of illnesses such as asthma, diabetes, cancer, congenital heart disease, and hemophilia. The Wells Center encompasses a breadth of multidisciplinary expertise in biochemistry and molecular biology, immunology, molecular genetics, and cellular and integrative physiology—making it a uniquely collaborative environment for developing innovative approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of sick children in Indiana and beyond.
