Child Health Research Centre

The University of Queensland

The Child Health Research Centre brings together researchers from a range of specialist areas to tackle some of the big issues in child health. With specialists in infectious diseases, nutrition and growth, burns, respiratory illness, environmental health, allied health, biostatistics, epidemiology and more, we are working in partnership with doctors, nurses, health specialists and parents to find new and better methods for promoting child health and for treating common childhood illnesses and injuries. Our Centre has many research groups dedicated to understanding more about the health of children. In addition to understanding the factors that contribute to health, researchers are also working to improve the ability to diagnose and detect disease and disability as early as possible. No matter what our individual research groups are focused on – our collective vision is the same: to prevent disease and disability before it occurs, thereby giving children the gift of life-long health.
