At BC Children’s Hospital Research Institute (BCCHR), our researchers save and transform children’s lives through discovery, innovation, and excellence. Together with our generous and visionary partners, funders, and donors, and the families who participate in our research, we are at the forefront of child and family health in British Columbia and around the world.

BCCHR is located on the BC Children’s Hospital campus in Vancouver, the only hospital in BC devoted exclusively to pediatric patients. Our institute is the largest of its kind in terms of people, productivity, funding, and size in Western Canada.

In the lab, clinic, and community, our clinicians and scientists are:

  • Improving treatments and finding cures
  • Developing breakthrough technologies
  • Advancing knowledge of child health and development
  • Informing health policy and practice

We are academically affiliated with the University of British Columbia Faculty of Medicine and a program of the Provincial Health Services Authority. BCCHR is supported by the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.
