Herman B Wells Center for Pediatric Research

The Herman B Wells Center for Pediatric Research conducts basic science and translational research within the Department of Pediatrics at the IU School of Medicine, and the center offers exceptional opportunities for collaborations between basic scientists, translational scientists and physicians.

Since opening in 1991, the Wells Center has grown from four investigators and three employees to today’s 34 investigators and 230 staff members. By focusing both on discovery basic research and translational studies, bench research findings rapidly move into the clinical setting to help heal sick children. The center’s research programs are multidisciplinary and traverse traditional clinical section boundaries.

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.
