UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh has launched a new medical podcast series for physicians, scientists and other health care professionals featuring the hospital’s leading researchers and clinicians.

Episodes of “That’s Pediatrics” will include compelling interviews with scientists at UPMC Children’s Hospital who are performing innovative basic, translational and clinical research. New episodes will be released every two weeks.

“Going back to the polio vaccine, Pittsburgh has always been a hub of very innovative research, and in recent years has really become a nexus for some groundbreaking research in pediatric medicine,” said John Williams, M.D., chief of the Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases at UPMC Children’s and one of the podcast hosts. “There is a spirit of collaboration here in Pittsburgh that makes it somewhat unique nationally and we really want to explore the research that is happening here and how we have a real opportunity to change the way pediatric medicine is practiced around the world.”

Current episodes of “That’s Pediatrics” include:

  • “Gene Therapy” with George Gittes, M.D., director of the Richard King Mellon Foundation Institute for Pediatric Research and co-scientific director, UPMC Children's Hospital
