Rhode Island Child Clinical Trials Collaborative

Initiatives -
The objective of the RICCTC is to create a network to advance the field of Pediatric Medicine by establishing and maintaining a network of academic centers that perform multi-center clinical protocols in a rigorous manner to investigate the safety and efficacy of treatment and management strategies to care for children.Our Specific Aims are to: 1. Provide new opportunities for patient enrollment in a national pediatric network through collaboration between academic research centers and institutions; 2. Leverage established strengths in public health and epidemiology to identify environmental exposures that will support the prospective trials of the ISPCTN; 3. Develop programs to educate and mentor clinicians and basic scientists to become independent investigators in the area of clinical research

Supplementary Information
The state demographic includes many underserved, minority and immigrant children, who have high rates of infant mortality, asthma, obesity, prematurity, mental health problems and special health care needs. This high risk population has not been previously included in many clinical studies; hence, they will benefit both directly and indirectly from the work of the RI-CCTC.
