MESSAGE FROM THE FACULTY
It’s summertime in Durham, but things haven’t slowed down at the DCRI. In this issue of the all-new DCRI newsletter, I’m excited to announce an important development for one of our most vital projects.
We are delighted to announce that the Pediatric Trials Network’s (PTN) contract has been renewed by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) until 2026. We are grateful to each and every one of our partners who made this possible. Without enrollment, there are no clinical trials. Our partners, including investigators, nurses, study coordinators, research pharmacists, and others, are central to our efforts to find the safest, most effective doses of commonly used drugs to inform the treatment of infants and children.
This issue of the newsletter also contains updates about our new faculty, upcoming meetings, recent awards, and other work going on at the DCRI. Sharing this information is part of our mission to share knowledge, and as always, we appreciate your interest in the work we do here.
