WVU Medicine Children’s joins investigator-initiated, multi-site, collaborative research network

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — WVU Medicine Children’s has joined Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C., Children’s HealthSM in Dallas, and Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida, as the inaugural members of the Pediatric Collaboratory Network (PCN) through TriNetX, the global network of healthcare organizations driving real-world research to accelerate the development of new therapies. 

“This collaborative will bring WVU Medicine Children’s and participating institutions to the forefront of research and innovation,” Pavithra R. Ellison, M.D., M.M.M., medical director of Perioperative Services at WVU Medicine Children’s, said. “We are excited to partner with peer institutions and look forward to ushering in a new era of data-driven research at global scale.”

The PCN will streamline investigator-initiated research utilizing pediatric real-world data (RWD) across participating institutions. Representatives from the participating pediatric medical centers meet monthly to propose and evaluate new collaborative research opportunities, introduce potential co-investigators, and pursue peer-reviewed publications. Additional pediatric medical centers are welcome to join the collaborative.

“TriNetX is thrilled to support pediatric medical centers with real-world data for investigator-initiated research that leads to a better understanding of human health and improved outcomes for all patients,” Rick Lilienthal, director of Data Expansion at TriNetX, said. “Participation in the Pediatric Collaboratory Network is open and encouraged for all researchers interested in pediatric research that join the TriNetX global health research network.”
