The Committee on Pediatric Research (COPR) makes policy
recommendations to the Board of Directors on various aspects of child health
research such as identifying major research questions, promoting funding for
pediatric research (7 Great Acheivements), and monitoring the status and
practice of including children in federally sponsored research studies. For information on including children in research, go to Children and Clinical Studies.
The COPR develops and collaborates with other committees on policy statements and maintains liaison relationships with many national pediatric associations and federal agencies that have a strong interest in promoting child health research. The COPR also reviews applications for the AAP Resident Research Grant.
