The Research Open House at BC Children's Hospital is an interactive morning event that offers high school students an opportunity to visit research labs, interact with research trainees and participate in research activities.
Congratulations to the BC Injury Research & Prevention Unit at BC Children’s Hospital, whose video on physical literacy received an award from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research 2019 IHDCYH Talks Video Competition.
A new study suggests that specialized immune cells that dampen inflammation and help repair the gut could be used as a potential therapy for children dealing with the painful symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease.
Scientists have developed a molecular “clock” that could reshape how pediatricians measure and monitor childhood growth and potentially allow for an earlier diagnosis of life-altering development disorders. The research, published this week in PNAS, describes how the addition of chemical tags to DNA over time can potentially be used to screen for developmental differences and health problems in children.
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.
