The UCL Institute of Child Health (ICH) is the primary research partner of Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children. Togther we form the largest centre for paediatric medical research outside North America.
Academics at the ICH and clinicians at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) work together to form an integrated and multi-disciplinary approach to the understanding, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of childhood disease. Many individuals hold joint appointments at both institutions.
This allows the hospital and the Institute to work together to translate research undertaken in laboratories into actual clinical trials in the hospital and real benefit for the children at GOSH and the wider paediatric community.
For more information, please see the UCL Institute of Child Health Website.
