Congratulations to Dr. Andrew Trout, the Department of Radiology and Medical Imaging’s Director of Clinical Research, who was recognized with the CLINICAL/TRANSLATIONAL RESEARCH ACHIEVEMENT AWARD. Dr. Trout’s clinical and research focus areas include advanced abdominal Imaging and diagnostic and therapeutic nuclear medicine. His translational research has led to advances in the imaging of liver disease, allowing non-invasive quantitation of fibrosis and fat, the quantitative evaluation of pancreatic exocrine function, and the theranostic assessment and treatment of neuroendocrine tumors.
Dr. Trout is a model of collaborative science, working closely with members of gastroenterology, oncology, cardiology, pulmonology, and surgery. He is a member of the ARC-funded Pancreas Care Center, Fontan Management Program, and Fibrosis Collaborative. He has been an investigator and co-investigator on several foundations, society, and NIH grants.
Dr. Trout gives back to the research field through his editorial work with Pediatric Radiology and as an active reviewer for multiple other journals to help improve the research of others. He also pays it forward by mentoring other faculty and directing the Radiology fellowship research program.
The office for Clinical and Translational Research’s mission is to provide Cincinnati Children’s clinical research investigators and industry sponsors with comprehensive support services, research tools, experienced research personnel, and facilities to conduct or facilitate pediatric and adult clinical research from identification and development of research opportunities to phase I through phase IV clinical research trials.
