Clinical Pharmacology Research
Clinical Pharmacology Research

Fellows in the Clinical Pharmacology program have the opportunity to participate in the Clinical Pharmacology research program, which explores the variability in the response to medications across all fields of pediatric medicine. The ultimate goal of the program is to improve clinical care by increasing both the safety and effectiveness of medications in children. A secondary goal is to provide a learning environment conducive to developing clinician-scientists committed to improving the use of medications in children.
