The Experimental Therapeutics Unit (ETU) provides clinical research infrastructure for investigators in the design, initiation, conduct and reporting of clinical research with the goal of translating scientific knowledge into new therapies for pediatric conditions. Funding for the ETU services is from the Harvard Catalyst, which is an affiliate-wide effort to facilitate laboratory-to-bedside translational research and to encourage researcher collaboration.

The mission of the Experimental Therapeutics Unit (ETU) is to provide state-of-the-art clinical research facilities and expertise to faculty who conduct human studies. The goal of the ETU is to create a "value-added" service to the Boston Children's clinical research community in the following ways:

  1. Offer expert protocol consultation and implementation.
  2. Improve access and flexibility of clinical research expert services and facilities to meet study and patient needs.
  3. Partner with investigators to guide and facilitate study coordination.
  4. Create a sustainable yet customer-focused center at Boston and Waltham to meet both patient and researcher needs.
