Patient-Oriented Research

CPROM clinical investigations work in concert with our laboratory studies, providing a comprehensive understanding of the relationship between metabolism and obesity, ultimately supporting our pursuit of the most effective patient programs and therapies.

Obesity and metabolism related clinical studies that are currently underway are listed on the UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh website. Select a study to review a brief description and requirements. Parents or guardians of children who might be eligible are encouraged to inquire about enrollment. Contact information is listed at the end of each study.

Thank you for exploring these opportunities and helping us to find better therapies to address pediatric obesity, type 2 diabetes, dyslipidemia, and cardiovascular disease risk.
