The Drotar research lab investigates treatment adherence and self-management in children and adolescents with chronic conditions. Our current work focuses on these issues for children with type 1 diabetes (SMART), cancer (OPTIMAL) and mild to severe persistent asthma (TAPA). OPTIMAL and SMART are both multisite research studies, with Cincinnati Children’s as the central coordinating site. TAPA is a pilot study funded by the Center for Treatment Adherence.
We recruit undergraduate and graduate students to work with us on one or more of our research studies. Students have the opportunity to learn a great deal about research. Their typical tasks might include data collection (study visits, medical chart reviews, structured clinical interviews) and / or data management tasks (computerized data entry, reviews of data from other sites, data cleaning). You can earn course credit for your work with us, if approved by the team and the university where you are enrolled. If you are interested in working with us, contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Indicate “Student Research Opportunity” in your subject line.
