who we are
MIDWEST CHILDREN’S HEALTH RESEARCH INSTITUTE
Founded in 2006, by the physicians of Complete Children’s Health (CCH), led by Dr. Brad Brabec, Midwest Children’s Health Research Institute (MCHRI) is dedicated to improving the health of children through its involvement in Phase 3 and Phase 4 clinical research trials.
With access to over 25,000 of Complete Children’s Health active patients as well as the attention of a large referral region (Nebraska’s population is approximately 1.7 million people with over 1.2 million of those living within a 50 mile radius of Lincoln), MCHRI has had and will continue to have the ability to recruit a wide variety of pediatric patients for drug, vaccine, formula, and general consumer product studies. CCH cares for several kids who suffer from allergies and allergic rhinitis, and they perform allergy immunotherapy in all four of their offices. CCH also has a reputation for diagnosing and treating “fussy” babies who have problems with milk/soy protein intolerance and/or gastroesophageal reflux.
MCHRI has been fortunate to have been able to work with some of the largest healthcare manufacturers in the industry to improve the quality and safety of infant formula, pediatric vaccines, and medications that contribute to a healthier child. MCHRI has successfully conducted Infant Formula trials, Pediatric Vaccine trials, Observational trials and trials including conditions such as Asthma, Autism, ADHD and Downs Syndrome along with skin conditions such as Atopic Dermatitis, and Molluscum. We are recognized as a preferred site by the sponsors and monitors that we have worked with and in many trials MCHRI has been a top enroller.
