We were the University’s first large-scale research institute. Our Vision is "A healthy start for a healthy life". Our Mission is to improve life-long health through excellent research into long term consequences of early life events.

  • Our people

    Meet the scientists, clinicians and researchers who work at the Institute.

  • Research opportunities

    We offer internationally recognised training programmes in all areas of our research.
