One of our main focuses is on transitional research – getting results from bench to bedside to deliver personalised medicine, individual treatment plans based on the child individual case, genes and responses. We want to discover more precise and faster diagnoses for children, targeted interventions and cures. Ultimately we want to save more children’s lives and improve long-term outcomes for each sick child.
Thanks to research, today, Alex, a Cystic Fibrosis patient has an average life expectancy of 45 years. Just 10 years ago a child with CF’s life expectancy would have been just 25. Forty years ago, children like Kerri with Lymphoblastic Leukaemia would have a 10% chance of survival. Today, thanks to research 90% of children with Lymphoblastic Leukaemia are cured.
The Children’s Health Foundation will continue to invest in research and ensure that every patient that passes through the doors of Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin receives the best treatments and supports possible in an environment that supports recovery and well-being. https://www.childrenshealth.ie/
