Research Areas

To maximise the use of our resources, and to ensure the greatest impact of the work, the research at NCRC has focussed on a number of priority areas: Infection and Immunity; Childhood Cancer; and Cardiology and Vascular Biology. These research themes incorporate some of the most challenging areas in child health, and exploit both the scientific and medical paediatric research expertise available.

Science and medicine evolve quickly, and new pipeline areas are also supported for development through our Innovation Awards. It is expected that some of these will become priority areas for research into the future.
