The Child Health Research Program was established by Dr. Christy Sandborg in 2005 with the mission to increase the quantity and quality of clinical research in child health. The program offers a centralized clinical core with research support personnel, assistance with scientific expertise and advice, and career development services for junior investigators.

Newly named Spectrum Child Health in 2008, the organization continues to provide these services in addition to a formal Pediatric Mentoring Program and several pilot funding programs in preparing early and mid-career faculty for a career in clinical and translational research. These services are available to Stanford faculty and trainees participating in clinical and translational research in children.
