If you can't attend, please join us online for the webinar

More accessible gene sequencing has allowed Dr. Micheil Innes and his colleagues to diagnose many previously undiagnosed, complex chronic diseases. We will explore how this new technology is helping children and families in Alberta.

Presented by Community Education Service of Alberta Health Services in partnership with the Alberta Children's Hospital Research Institute at the University of Calgary   Poster

Gene therapy used to treat Fabry disease - a world first

A team of Canadian physicians and researchers is believed to be the first in the world to have used gene therapy to treat a patient with Fabry disease, a rare inherited enzyme deficiency that can damage major organs and shorten lifespan.
Dr. Aneal Khan, the Alberta Health Services medical geneticist and member of the Alberta Children’s Hospital Research Institute, Cumming School of Medicine is leading the experimental trial in Calgary.

Researcher to study how to make kids safer on urban streets

With a $1.9-million grant awarded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), Brent Hagel, PhD, and the Built Environment and Transportation Safety team will work with provincial governments, municipalities and national safety professionals to determine the best street environment for kids.

Understanding SIDS risk factors

Researchers are one step closer to understanding how exposure to cigarette smoke increases the risk of SIDS. Dr. Shabih Hasan is the senior author on the study which examines how the cumulative effect of high environmental temperatures (caused by factors such as co-bedding and over-wrapping) and exposure to infection increases the risk.
