Pediatric Research At Queen’s (PRAQ)

Pediatric Research At Queen’s (PRAQ) is a unit within the Department of Pediatrics that provides methodological, analytic and administrative research support for faculty and residents. Members of PRAQ have experience in leading and coordinating basic science, clinical, and epidemiological studies and strive to foster a collaborative and dynamic research environment within the department.

If you are new to research at the Kingston Health Sciences Centre, this link provides a comprehensive orientation to hospital-based research and a series of research road maps. Any faculty and/or resident who would like to initiate a study as a principal investigator is urged to contact PRAQ   as early as possible in the planning process for methodological and logistical support. If you will be acting as a site investigator for a clinical trial or other type of study, please contact Martin Ogwuru  for assistance with ethics and TRAQ DSS submissions, contracts, and other project set-up activities.
