Clinical trials involving children

In the Clinical Trial Unit (CTU) of the new Children’s Hospital, we promote the health of children and adolescents, increase children’s opportunities to participate in drug trials, and provide information on the best possible care for children. In addition, we support academic research and conduct pharmaceutical or device trials in cooperation with companies.

Research involving children is challenging and strictly regulated. In our research activities, patient safety is a top priority. 

We aim to make children’s hospital visits as smooth as possible, so an examination appointment may also be carried out during a child’s other visit or hospital stay. 

Our reception facilities are located at Park Hospital.
