A society of pediatric clinical research professionals
A society of clinical research personnel is currently being established at Children's Hospital. A steering committee has been formed and is developing the charter for the society. The society is geared toward the professional development and support of all Children’s Hospital clinical research personnel. Check back soon for more information on this exciting new endeavor.
Welcome to the Clinical Trials Office (CTO) at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. We are a centralized office that provides resources and assistance to clinical research investigators, enabling them to carry out clinical research in a manner consistent with the Hospital's goals – excellent patient care, top-quality education, and innovative research.
The CTO has expertise in implementing, conducting, and monitoring clinical trials and provides a variety of services that benefit both novice and experienced clinical researchers. The CTO was designed to ensure the excellence and compliance of investigators' clinical research trials. Toward this goal, the CTO sponsors a monthly seminar series, known as the Brown Bag Lunch, for all clinical research personnel. Invited speakers present on selected topics pertinent to clinical research. At each Brown Bag Lunch, an Institutional Review Board representative is available for a Q&A session.
The CTO offers a wide array of services and opportunities for you, your patients, and your research studies.
