Research Funding*:

  • Dose Wizard Development

    This is an investigator-initiated study. As the PI, Dr. Minneci coordinated the development of the DoseWizard technology and oversaw the filing of the patent with his co-investigators. He was responsible for writing this grant and will be responsible for completing development of this technology.

    Objective: This study will develop an automated system to rapidly calculate and track radiation dose from pediatric CT scan images with clinical characteristics and diagnoses. This study has led to a patent for the created DozeWizard Technology.

    Funding Period: 7/1/2015-6/30/2016
    Funding Amount: $25,500
    Funding Institution: Technology Development Fund, The Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital Pilot Grant
    Role: Principal Investigator
  • Multi-Center, Randomized Double-Blind, Three-Arm Parallel-Group Trial to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of NTRA- 9620 in Infants with Short Bowel Syndrome (SBS) Following Surgical Resection

    This is an industry sponsored study. As the Site PI, Dr. Minneci reviewed and provided feedback on the study protocol and design. He is responsible for the conduct of this study at our site including patient enrollment and data collection. Once completed, he will participate in reviewing the results and manuscript writing, and results dissemination.

    Objective: This is a multi-center randomized controlled trial investigating the effects of oral insulin in neonates with short bowel syndrome with less than 70% of expected bowel length remaining. Enrollment at our site should begin in September 2016.

    Funding Period: 7/1/2016-6/30/2020
    Funding Amount: $160,000 (based on expected enrollment of 10 patients at our site)
    Funding Institution: Industry Sponsor
    Role: Site PI
  • Multi-Institutional Trial of Non-Operative Management of Uncomplicated Pediatric Appendicitis

    This is an investigator-initiated study. As the PI, Dr. Minneci was responsible for developing the study question and experimental design, organizing the consortium of 10 research sites, enlisting patient, family and other healthcare stakeholders from each site, and writing the grant application. He is responsible for the overall conduct of the study including patient enrollment, data collection, data analysis, manuscript writing, and results dissemination.



    Objective: This study will determine how well non-operative management works in children with early appendicitis at 10 hospitals. The most important results we will examine are the amount of time the child misses from everyday activities (disability for the child) and the success of non- operative management at one year. This study is actively enrolling patients at all 10 sites.



    Funding Period: 7/1/2016-6/30/2019
    Funding Amount: $2,875,543
