What we do
We teach and carry out research to improve children's health and wellbeing and to
prevent, diagnose and treat conditions that might affect them in
childhood or in later life.
We develop and apply statistical methods to complex research data and train researchers to use these methods.
We work with researchers from other disciplines and those who use our work to ensure that our research gives children the best possible start in life.
Dr Pat Tookey sits on the Steering Group for Positively UK’s From Pregnancy to Baby
and Beyond project, which trains women living with HIV as mentor
mothers to provide peer support for pregnant women newly diagnosed with HIV,
or planning pregnancy.
