Drexel University Collaborates with CHOP on New Academic Alliance 

Drexel University has entered into a new alliance to expand its academic and research partnership with the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).

“This initiative is the latest example of innovative collaboration among institutions within Philadelphia’s meds and eds corridor,” said Drexel President John Fry. “By cultivating new opportunities for collaboration among our talented researchers, we are laying the groundwork for tomorrow’s discoveries, the impact of which will be felt locally and internationally.”

Through the initiative, eligible non-clinical research scientists at CHOP will be offered non-tenured research track appointments as CHOP-based Drexel research faculty, at one of three colleges at Drexel: the College of Computing and Informatics, Dornsife School of Public Health or School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems.
