Queensland’s first fully-integrated research facility focused on child and adolescent health research. It is an integrated hub of specialist knowledge dedicated to improving the health of children, and facilitating best opportunities for collaborative research projects. The nine-level centre houses wet and dry laboratories, pathology services, a gait laboratory, a nutrition laboratory and the Queensland Children’s Tumour Bank, funded by the Children’s Hospital Foundation, which provides a tissue repository for national and international cancer research. The Centre also houses the Queensland Children’s Motion Analysis Service and the Children’s Nutrition Research Centre. CCHR is a partnership between Queensland Health, the Queensland University of Technology and the University of Queensland.
