Research is an important part of the work we do at BC Children's Hospital, Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children and BC Women's Hospital & Health Centre. You can be a part of it by participating in one of the research studies currently happening at any of these facilities.
The Ophthalmology Research Lab is looking for participants aged 4-7 with amblyopia (lazy eye) currently going through patching therapy to play simple computer games for a study looking at motion perception.

Help Prevent Drug Reactions in Children: The Canadian Pharmacogenomics Network for Drug Safety (CPNDS) is conducting a national study to determine the genetic link that explains why some children suffer adverse drug reactions, while others do not. View the CPNDS study poster. For more information, please contact Claudette Hildebrand at 604-875-2000 ext. 5410 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Genetic Disorders of Body Weight study is recruiting individuals who have severe, early-onset obesity prior to the age of 10 years along with intellectual disability, fat in unusual places on the body, compulsive overeating and/or birth defects. We would like to do detailed medical assessments, including new hormone studies and fat imaging. For more information, contact Marion Thomas at 604-875-2000 ext. 4927 or email@example.com.
