Our Research and Clinical Trials

Cincinnati Children’s involvement in clinical trials / research studies is crucial to understanding diseases and developing ways to prevent or treat health problems in children and adults throughout the world. Research at Cincinnati Children’s has led to medical developments such as the Sabin oral polio vaccine and the first heart-lung machine. The Office for Clinical and Translational Research (OCTR) functions as a “one-stop” clinical research support center – from concept development to publication. Its mission is to provide clinical investigators and sponsors with comprehensive support services, research tools, experienced research personnel, and facilities to conduct or facilitate pediatric and adult clinical research – from identification and development of research opportunities to phase I through phase IV clinical research trials.
