The department of Research Administration provides support for clinical grants and contracts being performed at Children’s Hospital as well as Institutional Review Board (IRB) activities.
Children’s Hospital is the Pediatric Satellite Clinical Research Unit of the Louisiana Clinical and Translational Science Center (LA CaTS). The LA CaTS center is working to transform the clinical and translational research efforts of our region toward a cohesive, mutually supportive enterprise for clinical and translational research.
Human Subjects Research
Children’s Hospital maintains its own Institutional Review Board (IRB) and has agreements with the IRBs of LSUHSC-NO and Tulane University for faculty of those universities. Please contact Research Administration for more information on receiving approval for human subjects research at any Children’s Hospital location, including outpatient and Children’s Pediatrics Primary Care clinics.
