NHLBI is launching a new web resource that will give health care providers and parents an insider's guide to children's medical research. Children and Clinical Studies combines information about how clinical studies in youth are conducted with award-winning video of children, parents, and healthcare providers discussing the rewards and challenges of participating in research. The new website was developed by NHLBI in collaboration with New England Research Institutes and Hands On Productions. Additional support was provided by the NIH Foundation; NIH's Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, and the National Center for Research Resources; and the National Marfan Foundation.
