Scientists have developed a molecular “clock” that could reshape how pediatricians measure and monitor childhood growth and potentially allow for an earlier diagnosis of life-altering development disorders. The research, published this week in PNAS, describes how the addition of chemical tags to DNA over time can potentially be used to screen for developmental differences and health problems in children.
The 2017/18 total research revenue of the BC Children's Hospital Research Institute was approximately $77.8 million, including grants, contracts and agreements received from foundations, granting agencies and organizations, government, hospitals and universities.
Operating funding in 2017/18 increased by $1.1 million, from $74.2 million in 2016/17 to $75.3 million in 2017/18. Total funding increased by $1.2 million, attributable to increased funding from foreign grants.
Expenses of $77.8 million were allocated as shown below.
