Boston Children’s Hospital is home to the world’s most extensive research enterprise at a pediatric hospital.

We also have many partnerships with the top research, biotech and health care organizations, and we work together to find innovative ways to improve kids’ health.

Pioneering research

Faculty members of Boston Children's Liver Transplant Program are conducting clinical studies to better understand why children’s livers fail and how we can improve liver transplants. We are constantly striving to translate our research findings into tangible treatments.

We’re also researching non-invasive tests to measure liver scarring in children with chronic liver disease, with the hope that these tests can help prevent the need for liver biopsies or other invasive tests.

Research by Maureen M. Jonas, MD, medical director of the Liver Transplant Program, has focused on liver disease in children with emphasis on viral hepatitis. Her recent work includes investigations into the treatment of hepatitis B and C viruses in children.
