This Notice announces the availability of a new website, developed by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) in collaboration with other NIH ICs that addresses the importance of research in children and empowers parents and children with the information they need to understand clinical research and make informed decisions about participating in a study.   In a format geared to all educational levels, the site combines text, graphics, and documentary film based on hundreds of hours of interviews with experts, parents, and children themselves to give visitors an “inside view” of pediatric clinical research. 

This educational website can help researchers and other healthcare professionals to answer patients’ questions about research.  The site has sufficient content to be used as an educational tool for trainees and junior faculty about the key concepts of pediatric clinical research. 

Please visit the site at:  www.ChildrenAndClinicalStudies.nhlbi.nih.gov
