As a leading division in pediatric ID, we depend on the contributions of a large support staff, whose expertise and dedication serve to facilitate the division's administrative, clinical, education and research operations. Specifically, our division has five dedicated research coordinators and interfaces directly with several other coordinators in key areas. The research infrastructure is also supported by a dedicated regulatory specialist and expert data management personnel. Our division’s clinical care is supported by a nurse practitioner, a full-time clinical nurse, and two social workers.
