Biomedical Research in Pediatric Healthcare

Pediatric Associates performs research studies in Integrative Healthcare, in partnership with several universities, laboratories, technology provider companies, and non-profit organisations.

We mainly address Biomedical Research into new approaches for pediatric care, and next level integrative medicine for children with special needs, such as Autism Spectrum Disorders patients and children with persistent behavioural problems.

Our research approach integrates mainstream scientific methodology and new holistic approaches. We address the neurologic aspects of the application field of research, psychologic and behavioral analysis, as well as nutrition-related concerns and multiple allergies assessment.
