Finding clinical research studies at SickKids

Welcome to the Research4kids database. At any given time there is a diversity of clinical research taking place at SickKids. If you are interested in either knowing about studies in a particular area, or are interested in volunteering in a study, you may search by entering one topic or combining multiple topics.

When the results of the search information are presented you will initially see a list of the clinical research studies which are actively recruiting subjects. This may be followed by a list of studies that have been previously conducted but for which enrolment is complete.
