The Nebraska Pediatric Clinical Trials Unit (NPCTU) was established to provide the underserved and rural populations of Nebraska and surrounding states access to clinical trials. Our clinical outreach network has access to a wide variety of underserved populations who would benefit from inclusion in clinical research and would enhance the quality and applicability of data generated for pediatric research as a whole. Our Specific Aims as a participant in this program are two-fold: 1. To establish the NPCTU as the home for pediatric clinical trials in our region by developing a plan for communication with potential investigators and collaborators about trials, training opportunities and resources to support research. This proposal will also support the professional development of the principal investigator and associated faculty, residents and personnel conducting clinical research at UNMC and Children’s, while building on our existing program to conduct clinical trials research for children with a variety of conditions; 2. To provide the underserved and rural populations of Nebraska and surrounding states access to state-of-the-art clinical trials
