Our Research Institute is REALLY Cool

Watch as the Director of CHOC Research Institute Brent Dethlefs shows off some of the “cool” equipment we’ve got in our state-of-the-art research labs here at the hospital.

Scientists at the CHOC Research Institute use cryogenic freezers to store donated cord blood and bone marrow to be used for transplants in patients with oncology or hematology-related disease.

Want to know something else that’s pretty cool? Our seven cryogenic freezers are named after the seven dwarfs. That’s right—we rely on Sleepy, Happy, Dopey, Doc, Bashful, Sneezy and Grumpy to support these life-saving treatment options.

Watch the video and meet “Bashful.”

  1. Someone shared this video link at work and when I saw it was made by Brent Dethlefs it made me smile. What a lovely video and wonderful program. Very moving to see the people that are helped by CHOC.
    Congratulations and best wishes always.~
