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.
Established as a charity in 1920, the Evelyn Trust makes grants to support medical research and health and wellbeing projects in Cambridgeshire. The Trust is particularly interested in research projects that have the potential to deliver transformational change, such as demonstration or pilot projects.
