The Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity Research Fund

The Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity Research Fund, launched in 2014, is a conduit for  Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity to support high quality research with the ultimate aim of improving children’s health.

This includes the health and well-being of the fetus, neonate, infant, child, adolescent, as well as the long-term outcome of a person with a condition originating in childhood.

Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity  has made significant contributions to the support of students and young researchers in Glasgow for several years. In particular, the funding of research projects, PhD studentships, clinical research training fellowships and summer student bursaries has enabled a number of students and young researchers to undertake clinical and scientific projects, and in many cases has been the start of academic careers.
