Research and Clinical Trials

Our rheumatology program is part of the Childhood Arthritis & Rheumatology Research Alliance (CARRA), an organization of pediatric rheumatologists committed to advancing the health and quality of life of children with rheumatic diseases.

Through CARRANet, a network of CARRA research centers, and the CARRA Registry, a national registry for all children with rheumatic diseases in the U.S. and Canada, our program participates in clinical research on new medications, new treatment strategies and quality of life studies.
