Principles of Pediatric Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics Lecture Series

The Principles of Pediatric Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics Lecture Series, launched in 2012, addresses the fundamentals of clinical pharmacology from a pediatric perspective. It is designed to meet the needs and knowledge gaps of those pediatric clinical pharmacology students who lack a formal educational curriculum in this discipline, but the series is open to other groups of trainees who may benefit from the information.

Although this lecture series was designed specifically for fellows in the T32 training program, anyone interested in the topic areas can also join the weekly webinars and discussions.

These lectures are taught by faculty from leading academic institutions across the United States and staff from NIH and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The weekly lectures external link are given via webinar about a variety of topics and have hosted participants from more than 30 countries in the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Middle East. The course provides trainees with expert knowledge before they move on to become junior faculty or start careers in clinical pharmacology.

Maternal and Pediatric Precision in Therapeutics (MPRINT) Webinars

The MPRINT Hub features monthly webinars on research-related topics pertaining to maternal and pediatric health external link. Visitors to this page can also find an archive of previously recorded lectures and registration information for upcoming webinars.

Sumner J. Yaffe Lecture/Webinar Series

As part of its collaboration with the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) and T32 programs in pediatric clinical pharmacology, NICHD presented the Sumner J. Yaffe Webinar Series in Pediatric Clinical Pharmacology from 2011 through 2020.

The lectures, aimed at scientists in the field of pharmacology, were intended to bridge the gap between adult and pediatric therapeutics and cover disease presentation in both adults and children. Experts from around the world participated in this engaging platform to discuss topics relevant to pediatric clinical and developmental pharmacology.

This interactive lecture/webinar series was dedicated to the memory of Dr. Yaffe, considered by many to be the father of pediatric clinical pharmacology.

The Obstetric and Pediatric Pharmacology and Therapeutics Branch also honors another pioneer in pediatric clinical pharmacology, Dr. George Giacoia. Dr. Giacoia retired from NICHD in 2020 after a distinguished career working to improve care for the smallest patients. More information on a new lecture series in his honor will follow.
