Platforms are groups of dedicated investigators with a specific expertise. The Platforms will work closely with the Clinical Study Groups. Given the complexity of pharmacological research with children, the following MCRN Platforms are launched:

  1. Paediatric Trial Methodology
  2. Paediatric Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics
  3. Paediatric Trial Ethics
  4. Patients and Families involvement

Within each Platform, sub-groups may be established to ensure that each specialty is adequately addressed. The Platforms are supported by the MCRN Coordinating Centre.
