Our interdisciplinary research program has a long tradition of improving the care of children. Our faculty collaborates and conducts interdisciplinary research with the Departments of Epidemiology and Biostatistics and the Institute for Health Policy Studies. Faculty and trainees receive support from federal, state and foundation sources to conduct research that focuses on improving quality of care and evaluating existing community health programs.
Clinical studies are coordinated through the CHIPPER program (Children Helping Improve Pediatric Practice, Education and Research), which is based in the Division of General Pediatrics. For information on current studies, click on the links below:
