Nemours Children's researchers in the Delaware Valley and Florida are developing life-changing technologies that help children with musculoskeletal diseases — like skeletal dysplasia, scoliosis, cerebral palsy and others — experience the world more independently. At the same time, we’re gaining new insights into the causes of many neurodevelopmental disorders and new ways to treat them.
Our Center for Orthopedics Research and Development (CORD) is a leading international pediatric biomedical research center in Orthopedics. And the labs within our Center for Pediatric Auditory and Speech Sciences (CPASS) focus their work on clinical applications that bear immediate relevance for children with congenital and acquired neurological, neuromuscular, and anatomical disorders.
