Research and innovation
Carrying out research into the best way to fight children’s illnesses has been one of our main ambitions ever since Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) opened in 1852. We’ve come a long way since then and, with our dedicated research partner the UCL Institute of Child Health (ICH), we now form the largest paediatric centre in Europe dedicated to both clinical and basic scientific research.
We are committed to carrying out pioneering research, to find treatments and cures for some of the most complex illnesses, for the benefit of children here in the UK and worldwide.
In 2007 we were awarded National Institute for Health Research Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) status. This was in recognition of the quality and importance of the research conducted within the organisation. We are the only paediatric BRC in the UK.
