We are pleased to congratulate the BC Children's and BC Women's investigators who were awarded funding through the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Project Grant Spring 2019 competition. Our research community received nine new research and bridge grants totaling more than $5.8 million.
Childhood Diseases includes Groups that are focused on studying childhood diseases and disorders. There is a specific focus on understanding mechanisms of health versus disease, as well as identifying and testing new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches.
We are dedicated to discovering how the body responds to health versus illness, and to developing and testing new ways to diagnose and treat a wide range of childhood diseases and disorders.
We regularly host PITCH (Progress In the Theme of Childhood Diseases), our local seminar series for clinical and basic researchers from across the Childhood Diseases Theme.
Our research groups are listed below. You can also search our investigators by Theme.
