Our clinical research unit provides a child friendly environment conducive to pediatric research. We provide investigators with a wide variety of services in order to help ensure they are able to conduct important research that will improve the lives of children.
Research Progress Conference
Each month, a presenter will give a presentation of a research project in development, covering specific aims, background and significance, and research plan. Senior faculty members will provide feedback and advice and lead discussion. This seminar aims to improve the quality of grant applications and/or related publications, and to increase the number of funded projects.
