Clinical Research Studies

Today, it is increasingly recognized that children have the right to research that meets their unique needs. Children are not little adults and often don't respond to medical care in the same way adults do. Some illnesses and conditions are only seen in infants and children. Research needs to include children to ensure they have the best available treatment, now and in the future.

Involving children in research also helps doctors know how best to care for children. Clinical researchers at Nationwide Children's are committed to identifying new approaches for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of childhood diseases, taking research discoveries from the lab to the patient's bedside.
