ACHRI unites a diverse group of scientists, clinicians and collaborators, all working towards a common goal: to help improve the health and wellness of children, young people and their families.
Child Health and Wellness research activities range from fundamental science to clinical, health services and population health research. ACHRI members are affiliated with 9 Faculties and over 36 Departments and Programs in the University of Calgary. Some of our members also hold clinical appointments with Alberta Health Services, working closely with patients, taking scientific discoveries from the laboratory into clinical practice, the community and beyond. With over 370 researchers, clinicians, clinician scientists and collaborators, our Institute is making discoveries in the physical, cognitive, and social domains of child health research.
