Presented by the BB&D Advisory Group and Administration, the Brain, Behaviour & Development (BB&D) Annual Research Day is held annually in the fall. The annual event highlights accomplishments and advances from BB&D researchers and provides a forum to learn about various ongoing or developing projects and collaborations. The event also includes a keynote presentation given by an internationally renowned guest speaker.
Is your child having trouble falling asleep and staying asleep? Do you have questions about what to expect with a newborn baby’s sleep schedule? How many naps is enough for a preschooler? Why is sleep important for my child? All of these are important questions regarding sleep in newborns, infants, toddlers, and preschool age children.
The Integrated Navigational Support Program is a combined research-system level quality improvement program. It aims to understand and improve the experience of families who seek and need services and supports for their child/youth with neurodevelopmental special needs (neurodisability) from across multiple agencies and service sectors.
We focus on clinical research to improve the lives of children, youth, and their families who have mental health difficulties. We are dedicated to the understanding of the unique strengths and challenges, and the beliefs, attitudes, and actions of this population, in order to develop and evaluate innovative and evidence-based practices for patients, professionals, and public community.
We are interested in using non-invasive imaging techniques, such as magnetic resonance imaging, in order to help scientists and clinicians better understand brain health and disease, and how to treat an unhealthy brain.

This week's Research Roundup covers new targets for treating schizophrenia, improved models of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia, game-changing concussion education for educators and a new way to identify concussions using resting state EEG data.
The Gut4Health team at BC Children's Hospital has put a novel twist on a gold standard nutritional treatment for pediatric inflammatory bowel disease. A prebiotic formulation could lead to longer-term remission and improve outcomes for children with IBD.
We believe there’s nothing we can’t do with your support. It can take years to turn scientific breakthrough into new interventions and treatments. Funding helps speed the pace of change. When given the resources, we can bring transformative therapies – and hope – out of the laboratory and into the clinic to save and improve children’s lives.
