Cambridge Children’s aims to transform healthcare for children and young people through the seamless integration of mental and physical health care and advanced genomic medicine. Advanced healthcare facilities will be co-located with world-leading research which seeks to understand the early origins of disease, to build resilience and improve life trajectories, and to shift from reactive care to prevention. To deliver on this vision for innovative, integrated research and healthcare, NHS Cambridge Children’s Hospital (CCH) is a combined development, which proposes to embed a 5,000 sq.m multidisciplinary Cambridge Children’s Research Institute (CCRI). Through location on the CBC, Cambridge Children’s will bring together clinicians, patients and University investigators with world-class biomedical research organisations and industry partners, creating further collaborative opportunities to improve translation of novel discoveries through the clinic and into practice.
Our research strategy
Both Children’s Hospital and Research Institute will adopt an integrated cross-specialty approach, which spans physical and mental health. Our five core research themes are shown below, along with the shared approaches and technologies which will help deliver their results.
