Translating research to real outcomes
The Centre for Children’s Health Research (CCHR) is adjacent to the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital, with child-friendly areas for clinical trials and investigation. Our researchers are collaborating closely with clinicians and health professionals at the hospital, ensuring that research is meeting emerging needs and providing much-needed solutions that can have instant impacts.
The CCHR is a collaborative research centre, bringing together expertise and capacity from Queensland Health, Children’s Health Queensland, QUT, The University of Queensland and the Translational Research Institute.
The centre is fostering an environment of collaboration and cooperation between all partners, increasing productivity and output while reducing costs and competition.
The centre’s research focuses on:
- nutrition and exercise
- burns and trauma
- paediatric spinal deformity and spinal disorders
- addiction and e-psychology
- respiratory medicine
- indigenous health
- medical microbiology.
