At Children’s National, we’re actively conducting research and clinical trials to pioneer treatments and cures for childhood’s most devastating diseases. At our world-class research institute, we’re performing more than 1,100 clinical research projects and rank seventh in the country for pediatric funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
The extent of our research program is not only exemplified by sheer size, but also by the vast array of specialties in which we perform our research. We’re leading efforts in the pediatric community to revolutionize treatments in childhood cancer, rare genetic disorders, developmental disabilities, behavioral disorders and surgical conditions. Our research, often performed through clinical trials, gives your child the opportunity to participate in studies that will develop new treatments that can directly benefit your child, as well as patients around the world who are faced with a similar condition.
Children’s National patients have access to hundreds of clinical trials each year. Through these trials, our researchers are working to treat – and even cure – childhood diseases.
