Paediatrics (Research)

Research in adults cannot simply be translated to children. Children are different; they have a different metabolism, different needs, and children sometimes have different diseases than adults. Moreover, children are a heterogeneous population, varying from premature newborns to adolescents of 17 years. Medicines work differently in children than in adult patients, and may have long-term consequences for growth and development. This makes research in children essential.
