Practice Driving Smart Study

Our team at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) Center for Injury Research and Prevention is conducting focus groups to help inform the development of a new smartphone application that helps parents supervise their teen drivers and improve the learning to drive process. We are looking for teens age 16-18 who hold a learner’s permit or received their provisional or full license within the past 6 months, and their parent/primary caregiver to participate in focus groups to gather your thoughts on our new application. Participation is voluntary and answers will remain confidential. Participants are compensated for their time and effort.

Healthy Controls EndoPAT

The purpose of this research study is to learn more about the normal function of blood vessels in healthy children and adolescents. This will help us discover differences between healthy individuals and children with lupus. Healthy control participants will be asked to make 1 visit to CHOP to complete a brief survey, a fasting blood draw and a test to measure the blood pressure in your fingers.

Vocal Biomarkers of Autism Spectrum Disorder

The goal of this study is to identify unique characteristics in the way kids and teens with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) speak in comparison to typically developing peers. We are looking for youth volunteers who either have or are strongly suspected to have an ASD diagnosis, as well as typically developing peers (ages 6-17 years). This study includes completing language based activities both in clinic and at home over 7 weeks. We will provide you and your child reimbursement for your time, and parking will be at no cost. A neuropsychological report detailing assessment results is available upon request. For more information please contact Kimberly Tena at 267-425-1157 or

Quantitative assessment of liver fibrosis in patients who have undergone Fontan palliation.

Patients with who have had Fontan surgery are at risk for the development of liver fibrosis and cirrhosis. New MRI based imaging techniques allow for non-invasive assessment of liver stiffness and fibrosis. These methods have been used in other diseases, but have not been studied in those who have undergone the Fontan operation. In this study we will test the feasibility of MRI based methods for the assessment of liver disease, and compare the results of these studies to those obtained from clinical liver biopsy.
