Our research

The Centre is primarily based within the new Royal Manchester Children's Hospital (RMCH). The RMCH provides specialist services for approximately 1 million children and young people across the North West. With this size of population and the importance of the clinical service, the paediatric centre is in an excellent position to expand and exploit opportunities that arise from the strength and breadth of NHS services.

Academic strengths in Paediatrics and Child Health, led by internationally recognised clinicians and scientists, include:

Currently there are 18 academics in these areas, with approximately 40 associated research staff. Productive collaborations with Genetics, Nursing and Psychology are well established, as well as connections with scientists in the Faculty of Life Sciences.

Links across the North West region will be key - in this regard strong collaborative and supportive links with Alder Hey Children's Hospital and the University of Liverpool are being developed.
