About PRN

Welcome to Pediatric Research Now, brought to you by Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago!


We know that your time is short. It can be difficult to keep up with the latest science focusing on children’s health, and to understand what you’re reading from across the full research spectrum. PRN is a new tool that makes it easier for you.

We pick great examples of the latest articles in pediatric research from around the United States and around the world. Our expert faculty at Lurie Children’s translate the findings for you.

Then we share the highlights with you, right here at PRN. In First Dose, you get a major take-home message from every study. If you have just 30 seconds to check out a study, First Dose is your best stop.

And if you have 2 minutes more, Key Points to Remember sums up other highlights of the study. Sometimes we emphasize the clinical implications. Sometimes we take a closer look at the research approach. Each time, you get something meaningful to remember about the featured article.

We designed PRN to be easy to access (no membership fee), easy to use (brief article summaries), and easy to share (through your favorite social media platforms). Sign up for our alerts, and we make sure that you will know when we feature another article (at least twice a week for now, and planning on even more in the future).

Why PRN, and why now? At Lurie Children’s, we want to celebrate high-quality research that focuses on children. We also want to make research accessible and understandable for anyone who wants to know more and learn more about kids’ health, today and tomorrow.

Let us know how we’re doing!
