Overview

We are the research arm of The Children's Hospital at Westmead, Located near Parramatta in Sydney's West. We are key member of the Westmead Research Hub, the largest medical research precinct in NSW, and a research entity of the Sydney Children's Hospital Network.

Our 300 research and support staff are committed to discovering new ways to improve the health of children. Many of our researchers are also clinicians, ensuring our world-leading research is quickly translated into treatments for their young patients.

Our work comprises three main areas: basic science in the laboratory to understand disease processes in children; clinical research to develop better diagnosis and treatment methods; and population health research to understand the impact of disease in the broader community.

We encourage collaboration with our key partners Sydney Children's Hospital at Randwick, Children's Cancer Institute, Children's Medical Research Institute, The Westmead Institute for Medical Research, The University of Sydney and the University of NSW, as well as with many other prestigious institutions in Australia and overseas.
