About

This Child Health Research PhD programme from University College London (UCL) provides excellent training, giving you comprehensive opportunities in fundamental and translational research of childhood health and disease.

Overview

The UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health (UCL GOS ICH) aims to produce highly employable graduates with an ambitious and resilient outlook and experience in core research skills, collaboration and networking. The Child Health Research PhD programme is offered by University College London (UCL).

UCL GOS ICH pursues an integrated, multidisciplinary approach to the understanding, diagnosis, therapy and prevention of childhood diseases. 

Our research and educational portfolios cover a broad range of paediatric issues, from molecular genetics to population health sciences, facilitating interdisciplinary work and allowing the flexibility for development of new areas of investigation. 

Our close relationship with Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children means that much of our research and teaching is carried out jointly and is translationally relevant. Students benefit from excellent facilities in both laboratory and non-laboratory subjects.
