Sanford Children's Health Research Center

Diseases that predominantly affect children are too often unaddressed by the biopharmaceutical industry and government funding agencies.

"I have the utmost confidence that we can discover solutions to some of the most troubling health issues that affect children."

- Denny Sanford, Naming donor & Honorary Trustee

 

A world leader in providing solutions to childhood diseases

Our mission is to generate translational discoveries about such childhood diseases as diabetes, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, hypophosphatasia (bone disorders), and congenital disorders of glycosylation.

Program

Human Genetics Program

We are discovering the genetic roots of human disorders and translating that knowledge for patient well-being and potential treatments.
