Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, which includes the Cincinnati Children’s Research Foundation (CCRF), is a not-for-profit hospital and research center pioneering breakthrough treatments, providing outstanding family-centered patient care and training healthcare professionals for the future. Cincinnati Children’s is the second highest recipient of NIH research grant funding among comprehensive pediatric centers. Annually, it has more than 2,100 investigator-initiated, industry- and federally sponsored IRB active protocols including pediatric Phase I-IV and select adult (vaccine and cancer) Phase I-IV clinical studies.
Cincinnati Children’s is accredited to conduct clinical research by the Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs (AAHRPP) and has been conducting pediatric research since 1931. Achievements by Cincinnati Children’s researchers include such breakthrough discoveries as the Sabin oral vaccine, the first practical heart-lung machine that made open-heart surgery possible and the discovery of the key ingredients of the surfactant preparation used throughout the world to save the lives of thousands of premature infants each year. More recently, Cincinnati Children’s researchers were responsible for the discovery and testing of a vaccine (Rotarix) that prevents rotavirus infection, which kills half a million children throughout the world each year.
The CTO at Cincinnati Children’s provides sponsors and investigators with comprehensive support services, research tools, personnel and facilities to conduct or facilitate pediatric and adult clinical research studies. Members of our CTO team act as research liaisons among our sponsors, contract research organizations (CROs), investigators, laboratories, research pharmacy and necessary departments. The CTO assists sponsors with investigator identification; study placement within the appropriate division or department; a centralized point of contact for study budgets, contracts, regulatory affairs and participant recruitment; and help to coordinate and / or facilitate pediatric and adult clinical studies conducted at inpatient and outpatient Cincinnati Children’s facilities. The CTO understands sponsors’ needs and is committed to conducting clinical studies with heightened attention to time constraints and budgets.
Cincinnati Children’s research expertise extends beyond its internal professional staff, research facility resources and close affiliation with the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine staff. It has links to a number of large treatment and research networks. Areas include:
We are also linked to private practice physicians and practices in Greater Cincinnati (including the practice-based research network of more than 25 practices, Cincinnati Pediatric Research Group).
