Our research

Our expert researchers are dedicated to improving the lives of children with cancer, bone diseases, genetic conditions, diabetes, infectious diseases, neuromuscular conditions, rare diseases, sleep disorders, and kidney and liver disease.

Research helps us discover the causes of illnesses, develop better treatments for children, and provide patients with early access to potential new treatments. Our research involves:

  • Lab-based discovery science and biomedical research
  • Finding out which treatments are safe and effective through clinical research
  • Translating research results into clinical practice.

The Kaleidoscope Project

This project aims to identify the top 10 research priorities for children and young adults with chronic conditions. If you or your child is interested in directing research to specific issues that matter to you, why not complete our online survey?

Bringing together children, adolescents, parents and caregivers, health-care professionals, policy makers, funding agencies and researchers, the project involves an online survey, focus groups with children, adolescents and their families, and culminates in a one-day workshop.
The project has received ethical clearance from the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network and the University of Sydney, so we're ready to go!
