Pediatric Therapeutics

The Division of Clinical Pharmacology, Toxicology and Therapeutic Innovation is a multi-disciplinary program integrating clinical and research activities aimed at making the use of medications in children safer and more effective. Combining the expertise of clinical pediatric subspecialists with basic scientists and other healthcare providers, our expertise in Pediatric Clinical Pharmacology is evidenced by multiple federal research grants, including an NIH-funded T32 post-doctoral training grant and an exciting new U54 program, Genetic- and Ontogeny-Linked Dose Individualization and cLinical Optimization for KidS (GOLDILOKs). The ultimate goal of the research programs is to develop novel methods to tailor the use of medications to the unique needs of individual patients, and to make those tools available to practitioners directly responsible for patient care. The ultimate goal of the program is to improve clinical care by increasing both the safety and effectiveness of medications in children.
