The University of Queensland (UQ), The Queensland University of Technology (QUT), the Translational Research Institute (TRI) and the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital are building a new Centre for Children's Health Research (CCHR) to place Queensland at the forefront of international paediatric research in Australia.

International leaders in specialist paediatric and adolescent research will be among 450 staff collaborating under one roof to significantly improve the lives of seriously ill children.

The nine-level building will house wet and dry laboratories, pathology services, retail spaces, and be linked to the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital.


The Queensland Government has committed $80 million, representing the largest ever investment in child and adolescent health research in Queensland’s history. UQ, QUT and TRI have each invested another $15 million.
