Providing children with quality health care requires more than office visits and hospital stays. The specialists with Norton Children’s, in partnership with the University of Louisville, are broadening knowledge of pediatric diseases, discovering new therapies and ultimately improving care.
Our pediatric specialists are pursuing clinical and translational research that brings new treatments and improved therapies to children.

Norton Children’s Research Institute, affiliated with the UofL School of Medicine, is made up of dedicated and experienced clinical researchers, coordinators, nurses, pharmacists and other staff. Our team conducts patient-oriented research to improve health care and the safety of medicines and devices in children from birth to adulthood, and includes all races and genders.
Our pediatric specialists conduct clinical pharmacology research and device research studies, with locations at Norton Children’s Hospital and the Novak Center for Children’s Health. These locations allow inpatients and outpatients to participate in trials, as well as provide education and training in research initiatives for the medical providers of tomorrow. Hundreds of children each year participate in studies right here at home.
