To teach, to heal, to discover

Welcome to the University of Arizona Steele Children’s Research Center, where our physicians and scientists are passionately dedicated to improving children's health through research and discovery.

The UA Steele Center is the research arm of the UA Department of Pediatrics, and one of the 14 prestigious Centers of Excellence in the UA College of Medicine.

Every year, our faculty train approximately 53 residents. During their three years of training, these doctors work alongside our faculty members and pediatricians in the community. UA Steele Center faculty also teach medical students and mentor graduate and undergraduate students who work in our research labs.

Our pediatricians and pediatric sub-specialists take care of thousands of sick children in Southern Arizona and around the state. Pediatric specialists such as cardiologists, geneticists and pulmonologists travel to rural areas of Arizona including the Native American reservations to bring specialized care to children in need.

Our researchers conduct research in many areas—from cancer to lung disease to nutritional problems—but the focus of each research project is the child. The researchers at the UA Steele Center receive grant support from national funding agencies such as the National Institutes of Health, the CDC, and in many cases, community philanthropy.
