Child Health (Institute of)


The Institute of Child Health pursues an integrated, multi-disciplinary approach to enhance understanding, diagnosis, therapy and prevention of childhood diseases. Our research and our educational portfolio cover a broad range of paediatric issues, from molecular genetics to population health sciences, and our structure facilitates interdisciplinary work and allows flexibility for the development of new areas of investigation. Our close relationship with the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children (GOSH) means that much of our research and teaching is carried out on a joint basis. Students benefit from excellent facilities in both laboratory and non-laboratory subjects.

Student View

"My experience of graduate study at the UCL Institute of Child Health (ICH) matches the expectations I had from such a high-ranked university. The classes in my MSc had small groups of students and the lecturers were all cutting-edge experts, not only from UCL but also from other UK top universities."

Degree: Cell and Gene Therapy MSc

Staff View

"One of the most beneficial aspects of being at UCL is having access to an incredible diversity of talent and expertise in virtually every field of enquiry. In my own area of neuroscience, there are over 700 neuroscientists concentrated within a small area."
