The Centre for Paediatrics and Child Health at Imperial currently comprises nine core research themes, which include researchers and clinicians from across Imperial College London and West London, and four cross-cutting research themes which underpin the Centre's research interests and encapsulate many of its large-scale, long-term ambitions.
Core research themes
The Respiratory Medicine theme is translational, ranging from pre-clinical, experimental models, to interventional clinical trials of novel medicines. The overall vision is to improve respiratory health for children and young people of all ages and minimise any detrimental long-term impact on adult lung health.
Origins of Child Health & Disease
The focus of the Origins of Child Health & Disease theme is on understanding the earliest stages of development and how they impact child health, and beyond. We combine fundamental discovery science in developmental and stem cell biology, reproduction, genetics and epigenetics with more translational approaches in clinical genetics, obstetrics, fetal-maternal medicine, perinatology and paediatrics.
Cross-cutting research themes
Genomics, Personalised Med, Platform Science & Bioinformatics
Genomics, Personalised Medicine, Platform Science and Bioinformatics is one of the Centre's cross-cutting themes.
Immunology is a cross-cutting research theme within the Centre for Paediatrics and Child Health.
