GOSH Biomedical Research Centre researcher Dr John Counsell has been awarded up to £75,000 of funding from the UCL Therapeutic Acceleration Support (TAS) Fund for a study exploring the use of novel vectors in gene therapy for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD).
Researchers at GOSH and ICH have been the first team to identify a novel recessive mutation in the transcriptional regulator LHX4 in a family with severe hypopituitarism – a condition that describes the loss of all pituitary hormones.
National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) BRC (Biomedical Research Centre) researchers, working in collaboration with the BRC at NIHR Queen Square Dementia and the Wolfson Biomarker Dementia consortium at Institute of Neurology (IoN), have developed a new test to diagnose different types of dementia, which they hope will allow for more reliable and accurate diagnosis of the neurodegenerative conditions of Lewy Body Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
All hospitals are required to publish information about the numbers of nurses working on each ward day and night, both registered and non registered, together with the percentage of shifts meeting safe staffing guidelines.
NIHR Great Ormond Street Hospital Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) has provided important infrastructure funding for research at the Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health (ICH) and Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), since we were first awarded BRC-status in 2007. This research...
