Research Projects and Initiatives

The EnRICH research group is focused on activities that enhance the methodology for the design, conduct and reporting of paediatric clinical trials. Advancements in clinical trial methodology are required to generate in an ethical and efficient manner, the necessary and sufficient evidence that is needed to accelerate the approval and implementation of new treatments for children. In addition to local efforts, a global community looking to translate basic science advances into improved therapeutics for children seeks innovative trial methods to overcome the current scientific and practical hurdles in studying interventions in young children. Our methodological research initiatives involve collaborations within the SickKids research community as well as work with other key stakeholders provincially in Ontario, across-Canada and around the world.
