In her new role as Director of the Cincinnati Children’s Research Foundation, Chief Medical Officer, and the ninth B.K. Rachford Chair of Pediatrics, Tina Cheng, MD, MPH, will have an opportunity to shape the future of our institution for years to come.

“We have a real commitment to the community and changing the outcome for kids through strong basic, clinical and translational research. That’s what attracted me to come here. I want to work with people who are as passionate about changing the outcome for kids as I am.”

Cheng comes to Cincinnati Children’s from her previous role as Director of the Department of Pediatrics at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and Pediatrician-in-Chief of the Johns Hopkins Hospital, Charlotte Bloomberg Children’s Center.
