We've created a new kind of research institute - an institute where kids are at the heart of everything we do.
Our bold blueprint brings together community, researchers, practitioners, policy makers and funders, who share our vision to improve the health and wellbeing of children through excellence in research.
The early environment affects health and development in childhood and beyond. Its influence starts from before a child is even conceived.
Brain and behaviour is at the core of many issues affecting
childrens' ongoing health and wellbeing.
At the Telethon Kids Institute, this research encompasses a child's learning, development and mental health - and the impact of conditions like cerebral palsy, autism and intellectual disability.
