Pediatric Surgery Research Collaborative (PedSRC)

Mission Statement

The Pediatric Surgery Research Collaborative (PedSRC) is a cooperative group of pediatric surgeons and researchers committed to performing high quality  clinical research in pediatric surgery.  Our primary goals are to increase the quality of research protocols prior to implementation; increase the number of multi center studies, and hence the generalizability of study findings; and leverage resources that already exist at participating institutions.
