Researchers from the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health (ICH) and Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) will lead a UK-wide effort to drive the development of new, targeted treatments for children and young people with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) and its associated eye-inflammation condition, uveitis.
CLOSED. Research students were invited to apply to the Doctoral Training Support Fund for funding to support the running costs for translational clinical research/experimental medicine projects being undertaken within GOSH and ICH.
The Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) Infectious Diseases department provides clinical expertise in the diagnosis and management of unusual and complicated infections, tropical diseases and children with HIV infection and AIDS.
CLOSED: The National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Biomedical Research Centre at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH BRC) are seeking applications from students wishing to undertake a PhD with an emphasis on translational research and child health.
The sagittal craniectomy with barrel staving operation is used to correct an abnormal head shape. It also enlarges the space within the skull to allow the brain to grow and develop. This page from Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) explains about the operation sagittal craniectomy with barrel staving, and how to prepare your child for surgery as well as what to expect in hospital afterwards.
Spring-assisted cranioplasty is a type of operation used to correct the abnormal head shape seen in children with sagittal craniosynostosis. It involves removing a tiny piece of skull bone, making cuts (osteotomies) either side of the fused sagittal suture and inserting metal springs that gradually widen the gap, which encourages new bone to grow in between the two cut surfaces. It also enlarges the space within the skull to allow the brain to grow and develop. This page from Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) explains about the spring-assisted cranioplasty operation, which is used to treat craniofacial disorders. It explains how to prepare your child for surgery as well as what to expect in hospital afterwards.
This is a list of patient diagnoses which are admitted to Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) by our Craniofacial team, the timeframe in which they should be treated and their estimated length of stay (LoS).
Infection, Cancer and Immunity (ICI) is a division within Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). The division covers the treatment of children with cancer, underlying immunology problems and congenital or acquired infectious diseases. Many of these children will undergo a bone marrow transplant as part of their treatment.
