The Department of Paediatrics a focal point for research for children and young people across Cambridge. Our research themes capture investigators both in the Department of Paediatrics and other departments and research institutes throughout Cambridge. Cambridge clinical investigators (Austin, Beardsall, Dunger, Pathan) recruit ~1000 children into NIHR portfolio clinical research studies per annum. The main site for clinical research on the Addenbrooke’s campus is the clinical research facility, which can accommodate primarily ambulatory subjects, and in-patient units themselves. Our laboratory-based research (Rowitch, Murray, Hovorka, Behjati and Zilbauer) takes place in various departments and institutes in and around Cambridge including the Cambridge Stem Cell Institute, Institute for Metabolic Science and Wellcome Sanger Institute. The Department of Paediatrics shares joint arrangements for salary support with NHS consultants and offers honorary or associate titles.
The department also has close links with Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (Addenbrooke’s) Women’s and Children’s Division with collaborative research opportunities in a number of paediatric sub-speciality areas including intensive care, neurology, oncology, neonatology, gastroenterology and paediatric respiratory / allergy medicine.
