Carrying out research into the best way to fight children’s illnesses has been one of our three main ambitions ever since our hospital opened in 1852.
We’ve come a long way since then and, with our dedicated research partner the UCL Institute of Child Health (ICH), we now form the largest paediatric centre in Europe dedicated to both clinical and basic scientific research.
We are committed to carrying out pioneering research to find treatments and cures for some of the most complex illnesses, for the benefit of children here in the UK and worldwide.
Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) and UCL Institute of Child Health were awarded NIHR Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) status in 2007, and had the award renewed in 2011. This was in recognition of the research conducted in the organisation. We are the only paediatric BRC in the UK.
