A healthy diet complete with plenty of fruits and vegetables is an important contributor to reaching and maintaining a healthy body weight. It is also protective against many chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and cancer.
Established expertise. Promising science. Tremendous potential.
The goal of our strategic initiatives is to create innovative solutions to some of the biggest health challenges facing children in BC and beyond. Each initiative brings together emerging areas of research, innovative projects and world-class investigators to transform care and advance child health. They are unique opportunities to establish BC Children’s Hospital Research Institute as a national and international leader in these fields.
Originally identified during the development of our Research Themes and 2016-2021 Strategic Plan, these initiatives span our research structure, basic research, clinical care and community health. They’re new areas of investment for the Research Institute and will be supported with new facilities, new expertise and novel partnerships.
