Meet the Researchers Advancing Pediatric Care

Each year more than 200 faculty and staff members at Children’s Mercy are involved in active research and pediatric clinical trials. These researchers are challenging the health care industry to find even better ways to treat children with medical conditions. We actively investigate new answers to traditional questions, look at why treatments work in some kids but not others, and find ways to make dosing more effective, more precise and safer for pediatric patients among numerous other initiatives. Our participation in national studies allows us to collaborate with other thought leaders in pediatrics as well. Meet some of our researchers and learn about their most recent work to transform pediatric care.
