Patient Family's Guide to Research

Growing Research through Advocacy and Dedication (GRAnD) is a research collaboration and workgroup consisting of clinical research professionals, investigators, and IRB representatives who are committed to improving the lives of children through high impact research at Lurie Children’s.

GRAnD is creating a library of patient, parent, and stakeholder-driven educational tools to sustain meaningful family engagement in pediatric research. The aim is to increase patient and parent knowledge and understanding of complex research topics, including informed consent and participant recruitment.

Overall, this video library is being established to share this information, answer questions, and ultimately, to expand clinical capabilities to benefit more children.
