Our team is focused on investigating use of virtual reality technology in pediatrics and providing evidenced based answers to help clinicians and health practitioners determine how to best use this innovative technology for everyday use.
The Injury Research Program led by Dr. Mariana Brussoni focuses on understanding injuries in children and youth, and measuring the physical, psychosocial and financial impacts of injuries on children, their families and the health care system.
The International Hip Dysplasia (IHDR) study group is an international collaboration of surgeons and medical professionals dedicated to improving the lives of children with hip dysplasia. With 23 worldwide sites and growing, IHDR aims to optimize patient care in health care systems around the world through research, education, and advocacy efforts.
Our research team, led by Dr. Louise Mâsse, aims to understand the factors in the school, social and home environments that influence children’s and teens’ health behaviours, specifically, physical activity, screen time and nutrition.
The vision of the Department of Pediatric Anesthesia at BC Children's Hospital is to provide excellence and innovation in patient-centered care for the children and their families of British Columbia. Evaluation, improvement, and innovation are key research activities that allow us to optimize the clinical care we provide.
The SEARCH team evaluates drug safety and effectiveness and identifies risks associated with commonly prescribed drugs; PREVENT uses pharmacogenomics discovery and replication (in at least three independent populations) to identify strongly-predictive pharmacogenomic biomarkers.
This week's Research Roundup covers babies' learning mechanisms that help them match unfamiliar voices to unfamiliar faces, the top risk factor that could signal greater disease severity in pediatric catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia, a virtual reality-based solution to reducing procedural anxiety in kids, and genetic testing for reducing diagnostic delay in monogenic inborn errors of immunity.
This week's Research Roundup covers medicinal cannabis and autism, the use of CRISPR to reduce transplant rejection, gender's role in adolescent food choices and the connection between early cytomegalovirus infection and allergies.
We believe there’s nothing we can’t do with your support. It can take years to turn scientific breakthrough into new interventions and treatments. Funding helps speed the pace of change. When given the resources, we can bring transformative therapies – and hope – out of the laboratory and into the clinic to save and improve children’s lives.
