Friedman with patientThe Pediatric Research Office (PRO) is designed to provide support for anyone conducting pediatric research at Children's of Alabama.  We provide expertise in a number of areas and have designed the Pediatric Research Website to provide additional resources that are easily accessible to investigators. 

In addition, the Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) offers opportunities such as mini-sabbaticals and research vouchers for investigators across campus.  Mini-sabbaticals provide short-term "immersion" opportunities for investigators seeking specific research experience or training, including matching funds to help facilitate the experience.  Research vouchers of up to $5,000 in direct support may be used to offset expenses for clinical and translational research services including clinical research units, sample handling and biospecimen storage, necessary laboratory tests, study design and methodology, database handling, and informatics.  The CCTS also provides scientific panels for review and refinement of ideas or grant applications.
