Clinical Trials

Arkansas Children’s, we are connected to international networks of researchers studying and developing the latest medical therapies. In many cases, we can provide treatments to your child right here on campus. In some cases, we may connect your child to developing treatments based at a partner medical center. To learn more about participating in a clinical trial, check out our Frequently Asked Questions.
