Research in the Division of Academic Child Health integrates basic science, translational and clinical medicine to improve clinical care and long term outcomes for infants, children and young people.
We utilise state-of-the-art bedside and laboratory techniques such as metabolomics, genetics and epigenetics, microbiology and bioinformatics to complement our research in clinically-relevant models, human volunteer studies and clinical trials.
Our research studies are focussed on some of the most serious and widespread developmental diseases including childhood obesity, cystic fibrosis and children's cancer.
Members of the Division lead research in:
