International Precision Child Health Partnership (IPCHiP)

Improves child health and rare disease outcomes through collaborative genomics

The International Precision Child Health Partnership (IPCHiP) consists of four leading children’s health institutions on three continents working together to decipher paediatric illnesses and find better treatments. The partner hospitals will pool their medical and scientific expertise to analyse medical and genomic data, aiming to accelerate discovery and therapeutic development.

Each site acquires its own funding, including from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the One8 Foundation, the Robinson Family Initiative for Transformational Research, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, Epilepsy Canada, Ontario Brain Institute, University of Toronto McLaughlin Centre, The Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation, MCRI, the Victorian Government’s Operational Infrastructure Support Program, the Melbourne Children’s Clinician Scientist Fellowship, the NHMRC, MRC, GOSH Charity (VS0122), Rosetrees Trust, and the GOSH NIHR Biomedical Research Centre.
