The Priority Research Centre GrowUpWell® focuses on improving child health through discovery and translational research that generates measurable health impacts of significance to our community.

Our research aims at developing preventions for asthma and respiratory infections, dietary and exercise interventions to treat inflammatory conditions, biomarkers to diagnose food allergies, tools to identify risk for developmental disorders in infancy and strategies to reduce adverse effects of chronic disease in childhood.
