How to get a project into PECARN

PECARN works with diverse demographic populations and across varied geographical regions promoting the health of children in all phases of care using multicenter studies, research collaborations, and informational exchange between EMSC investigators and providers.

In PECARN, each node works collaboratively with the others and with MCHB/HRSA to initiate, implement, and administer network research. Specific research projects, however, require extramural research funding to be conducted through PECARN.

Those who are interested in submitting a proposal to PECARN should contact Dr. Eileen Klein at
