Institute for Pediatrics
Global Hospitals’ Institute of Pediatrics believes that scientific research and education is an important part of the work that goes on at Pediatric Institute in Global Hospitals.
Research in medical field is the best way to address some of the lethal medical and surgical conditions troubling children. The pediatric institute is committed to research to enable better understanding of the medical problems, enable appropriate cure, and drive preventive policy changes at the community level for the same.
Researchers are making significant progress in such areas as diagnosing and treating pediatric cancers, sickle cell disease, hemophilia, developing prenatal techniques for diagnosing birth defects, and improving infant nutrition.
The overarching goal is to improve the health and wellness of children, to prevent disease rather than treat it. Through the multidisciplinary partnerships between physicians, bench scientists, and representatives from other scientific disciplines, the institute is striving to identify risks at the genetic level so that early intervention is possible. Some of the research undertaken here are:
- A project to identify genes that cause recessive inherited liver diseases - In collaboration with “Birmingham Children’s Hospital NHS Foundation Trust,” UK
