2016-17 NIGMS-NICHD and NICHD T32 Programs In Pediatric Clinical Pharmacology Journal Club
The NIGMS-NICHD and NICHD T32 Programs in Pediatric Clinical Pharmacology Journal Club is an educational activity/resource consisting of discussion and reviews of interesting articles related to pediatric pharmacology and therapeutics.
There is an urgent need to bridge the gap between pediatric pharmacology and pediatric subspecialists and between pediatric and adult pharmacology. One of the primary goals of the NIGMS-NICHD and NICHD T32 Program is to develop strategies to increase the involvement of pediatric subspecialists and pediatric and adult clinical pharmacologists within or across institutions in the advancement of pediatric therapeutics.
The Journal Club will attempt to help bridge this gap by highlighting a wide range of issues in various therapeutic areas. Articles selected for discussion will be published in contemporary pediatric literature with special relevance to therapeutic practice.
We welcome your participation!
