This course focuses on the study design and development of pediatric clinical and basic research studies that are currently in progress. Students will be introduced to real-world issues that faculty researchers face. Sessions will include presentations on study design and progress in a variety of specialties including: Cellular Biology, Genetics, Human Physiology, Pathology, Public Health, Healthcare Administration, Biostatistics, and Pediatric Emergency Medicine. Students will also study and learn the importance of responsible conduct of research (RSR), and the role it plays in good clinical practice. Depending on the semester, weekly lectures will take place at either the Williams Building in Research Park, or at Primary Children's Hospital. Students can take course multiple times for credit.
