Inheritance of Your DNA: Passing on Genes and Other Information
Dr. Stillman’s research focuses on how chromosomes, including both DNA and chromosome-associated proteins, are duplicated in human cells and in yeast, thereby ensuring accurate inheritance of genetic material from one generation to the next. Presented by Dr. Bruce Stillman, President, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, Cold Spring, New York; 2019 Canada Gairdner International Award Recipient. (2019)
Most Canadian children consume too much salt in their diets, which can lead to serious long-term health consequences. Read on to learn what parents and caregivers can do to ensure optimal health when it comes to sodium intake.
A new study BC Children’s Hospital investigators found that COVID-19 mRNA vaccines are safe to use in pregnancy, and that pregnant people experienced lower rates of health events post-vaccination than similarly aged, non-pregnant vaccinated people.
Hydroxyzine is a first-generation antihistamine commonly prescribed in syrup form to infants and young children with itch-inducing skin conditions, such as atopic dermatitis and eczema. New research shows that the more hydroxyzine a child is prescribed, the higher their risk for developing a tic, anxiety, or conduct disorder.
BC Children's Hospital researchers are part of a new international collaboration aimed at developing innovative treatments for osteosarcoma — a highly malignant bone cancer that commonly affects children and adolescents.
Congratulations to the BCCHR and WHRI investigators and their teams who were awarded funding through the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Spring 2022 Project Grant competition. Our research community received around $15 million in new research grants as principal investigators or co-investigators.
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.
