Welcome to the Children and Young People's Research Network Wales!
The Children and Young People's Research Network is hosted by the Institute of Molecular and Experimental Medicine, part of the School of Medicine at Cardiff University and was funded in 2006 by the Welsh Government to promote research & development in Wales.
The network works closely with the research and development infrastructure service, NISCHR CRC (National Institute for Social Care & Health Research Clinical Research Centre) and in 2010 became one of 17 NISCHR Registered Research Groups. Since that time CYPRN has proven itself to be a highly successful research network having received over £53 million in research funding since its inception.
CYPRN is led by Professor Sailesh Kotecha and is governed by an Executive Steering Committee with its primary aim to support the development of high quality research into Children and Young People’s Health across Wales.
The network strives to achieve this aim by establishing in excess of 10 Research Development Groups annually which are funded through a competitive process. The RDGs are assessed on the amount of funding they win from high quality, peer reviewed grant applications together with the number of papers that have been accepted to peer reviewed journals.
The hope is that in the long term, the main achievement of CYPRN will be to improve child health throughout Wales and that the high quality research stimulated and supported by the network will provide an evidence base for future child health policy and practice.
