As the Nation’s Children’s Hospital, our research mission is to improve the understanding, prevention, treatment and care of childhood diseases through basic and clinical research and education. We continually update and apply our findings to how we help our patients and their families and seek ways to improve the world-class care they receive. In order to continue improving our practices at Children’s and in the healthcare community at large, we need your help.

Children’s National offers ongoing opportunities in research studies, whether your child might be sick or is as healthy as can be, so that our researchers can better understand diseases and improve healthcare for patients. Children’s National is working with ResearchMatch to provide another way for our families to learn about the opportunities and possible benefits that come from participating in research studies.

ResearchMatch is a national volunteer research registry that securely connects researchers and willing volunteers who wish to participate in research studies.
