Research and Innovation

Research and innovation - Lab services 2

Carrying out research into the best way to fight children’s illnesses has been one of our three main ambitions ever since Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) 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.

The hospital and Institute were awarded National Institute for Health Research 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.
