The Department of Paediatrics is an internationally recognised centre for research in child health and development.
The Department's research is focused on the areas of diabetes, endocrine, gastroenterology, neonatal, intensive care and the determinants of birth size and infant growth. It also has a very active teaching programme for medical students, and supports postgraduate research degrees at MD and PhD level.
Cambridge owes its world-leading excellence in research and teaching to the generosity of its supporters. Our history is synonymous with a history of far-sighted benefaction, and the same is as true today as it has ever been.
A leading multidisciplinary think tank, the PHG Foundation, will become part of the University of Cambridge from 1 April this year, with a focus on making science work for health. This has been made possible by a philanthropic gift from the Hong Kong-based Hatton Trust, which has recognised the University’s global eminence in science, medicine and the humanities alongside the pioneering policy development work of the Foundation.
