General Academic Pediatrics Research

With an international reputation for research focused on ear infections, the Division of General Academic Pediatrics of Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC continues to explore treatment strategies for acute otitis media (AOM). These efforts are well funded and include support from the National Institutes of Health. Additionally, the division has taken on a leadership role as a Clinical Treatment Center for a nationwide study to evaluate the effectiveness of certain antimicrobials in preventing recurrences of urinary tract infections in infants with vesicoureteral reflux.

Among the division’s far-reaching areas of study are exploration of the relationship between maternal mental health and child outcomes; and vitamin D insufficiency and calcium nutrition among preadolescent African-American children.
