Research at Nemours improves the health and health care of all children. By seeking new approaches to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of childhood diseases and educating the next generation of leaders in the fields of children’s and public health, Nemours is making a difference today and establishing the opportunities to make a difference well into the future.

Our research program continues to grow in size and scope. Clinical questions continue to drive our efforts — and our advancing research capability is a critical benefit to the well-being of all the children we see.

Clinical Trials in Neonatology

We’re involved in many ongoing clinical trials and health services research programs. A clinical trial is a study that evaluates new medicines, new devices, new treatments, or new applications for old treatments.

Clinical trials are safe and supervised by a qualified physician, under strict guidance of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Patient safety is extremely important to the FDA, to those conducting the studies, and to everyone at Nemours. In a clinical trial, children participating in the study are monitored closely — and families may refuse any aspect of the study treatment or completely discontinue their child’s participation in the clinical trial at any time.
