Current Research Projects

Collaborative Pediatric Critical Care Clinical Research Network

 

Completed Research Projects

*Metoclopramide prevents PICU nosocomial infection"

*Transfusion Medicine/Hemostasis Clinical Research Network

This network will promote the efficient comparison of novel management strategies of potential benefit for children and adults with hemostatic disorders such as idiopathic thrombocytopenia (ITP) and thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) and lso will evaluate novel as well as existing blood products and cytokines for the treatment of hematologic disorders.  The objective of this Request for Applications (RFA) is to establish and maintain (1) the infrastructure required for a network of up to sixteen core clinical centers to perform multiple clinical trials and (2) a Data Coordinating Center for the Network.
