What is Clinical Research?

Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute is dedicated to solving the most challenging problems in children’s health, and we couldn't do it without the partnership of research participants. Clinical research volunteers help scientists learn more about the human body, medications and medical devices, safety, behavior, and even the health system. At CHOP, we’re grateful for our clinical research volunteers who partner with us to help advance the next breakthroughs in medicine.
