The Hugh and Catherine Stevenson Centre for Childhood Infectious Diseases and Immunology
Great Ormond Street Hospital treats 100,000 children a year. One third of these come to us with some form of infectious disease. Staff at Great Ormond Street Hospital and ICH work closely to ensure the rapid translation of laboratory science into everyday clinical treatments and care but the co-ordinated multi-disciplinary approach required was hampered as staff were dispersed around ICH and the Hospital.
With the demand for more research in this area on a global level GOSH
has established The Hugh and Catherine Stevenson Centre for Childhood
Infectious Diseases and Immunology to help prevent, detect and treat
serious infections in children.
Built on top of the ICH main building, the centre houses laboratories and research offices and brings together clinical and scientific staff working in the fields of infectious diseases and microbiology, immunobiology, applied microbiology and rheumatology at ICH and GOSH.
As well as benefiting children at GOSH and in other UK hospitals, we ensure that the benefit of this research will reach countries across the globe. There are strong academic links between ICH, GOSH, MRC Clinical Trials Unit and a number of hospitals and research organisations in Africa to help improve treatment for children with HIV/AIDS.
