Resolving the big questions to
benefit our smallest people

Welcome to the Child Health Research Centre (CHRC)

CHRC brings together researchers from a range of specialist areas to tackle some of the big issues in child health. With specialists in infectious diseases, nutrition and growth, burns, respiratory illness, environmental health,  allied health, biostatistics, epidemiology and more, we are working in partnership with doctors, nurses, health specialists and parents to find new and better methods for promoting child health and for treating common childhood illnesses and injuries.



Our Centre has many research groups dedicated to understanding more about the health of children.

Partnering for success

Our centre is partnering with child health research organisations throughout The University of Queensland, within the Centre for Children's Health Research, and across Brisbane though Health Translation Queensland.
