The Dell Pediatric Research Institute (DPRI) is The University of Texas at Austin’s state-of-the-art medical research facility designed to advance understanding of childhood diseases and disorders and help take pediatric care in Central Texas to a new level. The institute’s emphasis is on translational research — translating scientific research into products, programs and treatments to improve the health of society’s youngest members. Three broad research focus areas have been identified that address critical issues in maternal and child health: cancer, including pediatric and hormone-related cancers; childhood nutrition, metabolism and obesity prevention; and neurodevelopmental disorders and birth defects, including inherited metabolic diseases of childhood.
