Neonatal Research Institute Parent Advisory Board
The Neonatal Research Institute Parent Advisory Board (NRI-PAB) consists of parents or grandparents of infants who have been in an intensive care unit. Their unique point of view as a parent of a NICU baby helps us make a difference in shaping the future of NICU care.
The first of its kind, this Advisory Board consists of parents who provide feedback on our proposed and current clinical trials to help ensure that other parents will understand them and be comfortable participating in them.
In addition, one or two members of the NRI-PAB may participate on the ethics review panel (otherwise known at the Institutional Review Board) when a new trial involving babies is presented and may be involved in the decision to either approve, change or not approve a trial.
