Child Health Research - for lifelong health and well-being

Children are not small adults: at every age, they are unique. Preventing stressors and treating illnesses in babies and children have lifelong benefits. Our institute is devoted to child health research in a wide spectrum of disciplines – all focused on better lifelong health and well-being for children, families and communities.
