Join a research study to help our scientists make discoveries that could lead to better treatments and even cures for childhood illnesses and diseases.


What: This study will compare the MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) brain images of healthy children with those of children with a specific medical condition. There is no radiation associated with the MRIs.

Who: Healthy children up to 3 years old may be eligible to participate. Pay: Families will receive up to $150 for time and travel.

Details: Contact Sarah Simpson at  or 513-803-0135.


What: Researchers will collect data from healthy children about how they perform everyday motions such as sitting, standing, walking and running.

Who: Healthy children ages 4 to 17 may be eligible to participate. Pay: Families will receive a $25 Target gift card for this one-visit study.

Details: Contact Cailee Caldwell at  or 513-803-2166.


What: This project will ensure researchers have access to samples (such as blood and tissue) they need to find new ways to identify, treat and prevent childhood diseases and conditions.

Who: Parents of patients who have had samples collected during an appointment can choose to donate their child’s “leftover” samples. No additional samples will be taken for this project, and donors will remain anonymous.
