they think should get the most attention from researchers. The top 10 areas rated as "very important":

1. Childhood cancers: 83 percent
2. (tie)Safety of medications: 79 percent Safety of vaccines: 79 percent
3. Heart problems: 76 percent
4. Causes of infant deaths: 74 percent
5. Diabetes: 73 percent
6. Birth defects and other genetic problems: 73 percent
7. Transplants for cancer and other diseases: 71 percent
8. Prevention of infections: 69 percent
9. Asthma: 68 percent

"Through M-CHRP, the people of Michigan can express what kind of research they think is important for children. We hope this data can help U-M better reach families who want to contribute to child health research today and in the future," Davis says.

At C.S. Mott Children's Hospital, pediatric research is a top priority. The University of Michigan Medical School was ranked in 2013 as one of the top 10 research medical schools nationwide by U.S. News & World Report. About $320 million in National Institutes of Health funding was awarded to U-M faculty in fiscal year 2011.

"We need to make it a priority to get the word out about research opportunities for children," says Davis. "Medical research often needs healthy volunteers as well as those who may have the particular disease being studied. While many people may think of medical research as testing new medicines, children's medical research also includes other types of health studies related to topics such as behavior, nutrition, and mental health."
