Institute For Advanced Clinical Trials For Children

We are an independent non-profit organization and believe that children of all ages deserve innovative medical therapies that are developed with the same level of urgency and commitment afforded to adults. The Institute works with others to assure that studies are designed to generate sufficient data to allow safe and effective use of new medications and devices in pediatric populations.

A key factor in making this a reality is to optimize and accelerate biomedical innovation using child-centered clinical trial networks and collaboration with like-minded institutions, trial sponsors and other stakeholders. Together with parents, patients, investigators, foundations, regulators, other government agencies, biopharmaceutical sponsors and children’s networks, we work to catalyze improvements in the quality and timely completion of global pediatric studies to address the gap in evidence for best use of therapeutics in children.
