Tulane Pediatrics receives Pediatric Clinical Trials Network Award from NICHD as part of ECHO program

Dr. John Carlson, in collaboration with Dr. Daniel Hsai at Pennington, was awarded one of 17 grants from NICHD to become part of a newly established national clinical trials network linked to the larger Environmental Influences on Child Health Outcomes (ECHO). This four year NIH award will support the development of pediatric clinical trials at all of Tulane sites and throughout Louisiana focused on the ECHO outcomes of upper and lower airway diseases, obesity, neurodevelopmental disorders and prenatal, perinatal and postnatal health as well as other pediatric clinical conditions. You can read more about the ECHO program at this web site: Or check out this overview from NIH.   This is a great opportunity for Tulane to be part of a larger national effort to improve child health.  Congratulations!
