  • Adolescent and Transition Medicine Research

    Dedicated to Improving Adolescent Health

    The researchers in the Division of Adolescent and Transition Medicine at Cincinnati Children’s are dedicated to providing research and training that improves adolescent health in the community, nation and world. We have been recognized as a national leader in interdisciplinary education, primary care for high-risk youth, adolescent gynecology and a strong research focus with funding from the NIH and other sources.

    Faculty members in our division are conducting a number of studies that focus on understanding the healthy development of teenagers, risk and preventive health behaviors, prevention of different diseases and improving healthcare quality for teens with chronic disease. Research areas include: reproductive health, biobehavioral aspects of puberty, and quality improvement. 

    Within these areas, investigators utilize sophisticated qualitative and quantitative research methods, an array of statistical techniques ranging from simple to complex, as well as innovative technology to answer questions pertaining to health outcomes, health-related behavior and pubertal maturation. This focus has also facilitated research training of fellows in Adolescent Medicine, directing them into a defined arena to more easily accomplish their scholarly activities.
