General Pediatrics Research

NYU Langone’s Division of General Pediatrics is committed to the advancement of knowledge through research, with the ultimate goal of improving children’s health. The division’s faculty, including clinicians and researchers from primary care pediatrics, the Section of Pediatric Hospital Medicine, and the Child Protection Program along with researchers from the Division of Pediatric Hospital Medicine, conduct comprehensive research that addresses significant public health issues affecting children’s health, care, and wellbeing.

Research interests in the division are wide-ranging and are supported by grants from federal agencies, foundations, and local sources. In the primary care setting, these include poverty-associated health disparities, the role of health literacy in adverse child health outcomes, and strategies to prevent obesity and enhance early child development.

Research and quality improvement interests in the inpatient setting focus on issues that affect children who are in hospitals, including inpatient safety during discharge and transitions of care, postoperative hospital care models and inpatient pain management, child and family engagement in care and research, drug development, and well-newborn care.

Below are examples of some of the research activities within the Division of General Pediatrics:
