University College London, Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health

This programme is designed to train research leaders of the future by developing transferable academic and research skills in children’s health research. It is the only programme of its kind in the UK.

Our programme is supported by the full range of taught modules across UCL providing a self-tailored teaching programme that will enable you to gain the necessary skills and experience to support your project. The programme aims to provide you with practical experience and theoretical understanding of a wide spectrum of research methodology and critical analysis. The course will challenge students interested in further academic studies and will provide excellent grounding for PhD study.

Research areas cover the wide breadth of research at the UCL GOS Institute of Child Health and we work closely with our clinical partner Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children (GOSH) to complete cutting-edge research in: gene-therapy, stem cells and regenerative medicine, infection and immunity, childhood development, metabolic defects, neurosciences and cancer, to name a few.
