Philanthropy at CHORI: The Opportunity to Advance Health and Wellness Across the Globe
Established in 1959 Children's Hospital Oakland Research Institute (CHORI) is one of the most competitive research institutes in the country. The Institute enhances the capacity to understand disease and deliver state-of-the-art treatments, care, prevention and cures.
CHORI has been in the top 10 of the nation’s children's hospitals in National Institutes of Health (NIH) grants for over a decade. Currently, the Institute’s scientists work with doctors at Oakland’s UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital in over 300 clinical trials.
It has been with the generous support of donors, both small and large alike, that CHORI has achieved such major milestones as providing the first cure of alpha thalassemia major in North America, establishing the world's first and only non-profit sibling donor cord blood program, or developing a new vaccine for meningitis.
