Research within the department of surgery takes place at the Harrison Department of Surgical Research, which was founded in 1936.
Most of the department's research takes place on the 3rd floor of the Edward J. Stemmler Hall, which is conveniently located adjacent to the HUP operating room suite. In addition, a small amount of research space is located on the 7th floor of the Richards Building and in the hospital.
Members of the pediatric and plastic divisions have research space at CHOP and several surgical investigators have research space in the Institute of Gene Therapy and at the VAMC.
